New Delhi: On Friday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi gave a cryptic response to the media in Tamil Nadu about his decision to run for the party’s presidential nomination.
The Gandhi scion remarked, “Whether I become president (of Congress) or not, will become clear when the election for the presidential post takes place.”
He claimed that he had made up his mind about what he would do and that there was no room for doubt in his mind.
He said, “To put things in perspective, I am a member of the Congress party and I am participating in the Bharat Jodo Yatra,” saying the yatra’s primary objective is to bring India together, with any political benefits to the Congress coming second.
He hit out at the BJP and said the ruling party at the Centre is now taking control of all institutions in the country by putting pressure on them. “We are not fighting any political party, we are fighting all institutions,” said Rahul.
Currently, the Congress leader is in Tamil Nadu on the third day of his party’s mission, Bharat Jodo Yatra. Rahul’s yatra has reached its third day by hoisting the national flag at Scott Christian College in Tamil Nadu’s Nagercoil.
Rahul Gandhi started his Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari on Wednesday and it will conclude in Kashmir. During this trip, he will have to cover a distance of 3,500 km and cross 12 states, taking roughly 150 days to complete.
