New Delhi: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday mocked Congress’ “Bharat Jodo Yatra” and said Rahul Gandhi should visit Pakistan if he wants unification because India of today is “resistant, robust and united”.

“The Bharat Jodo Yatra is a comedy of the century! The Bharat we live in today is resilient, robust and united. The only time India was divided was in 1947 because Congress agreed. Rahul Gandhi ji should go to Pakistan for ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ if they want unification,” Sarma tweeted.

He also shared a photo of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Lord Mountbatten, India’s last Viceroy.

Meanwhile, ahead of the launch of its “Bharat Jodo Yatra” on Wednesday, Congress said it was a turning point in Indian politics and marked a “new beginning”. Rahul Gandhi attended a prayer meeting at the Rajiv Gandhi memorial in Sriperumbudur on Wednesday morning. “I lost my father to the politics of hate and division. Nor will I lose my beloved country,” he said in a later tweet.

“Love will overcome hate. Hope will overcome fear. Together we will overcome,” he said.

He is due to attend an event at 4:30 p.m. in Kanyakumari where Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, MP Stalin, Ashok Gehlot of Rajasthan and Bhupesh Baghel of Chhattisgarh will be present.

Stalin will present a national flag in khadi to Gandhi who will hand it over to the Seva Dal workers who will run the Yatra throughout. “September 7, 2022. A day when India’s oldest political party will launch the longest padyatra ever undertaken. It is a dark day, a day of silent reflection and renewed resolve,” said the Congress General Secretary , Jairam Ramesh, in a tweet.

“This is a turning point in Indian politics. It marks a new beginning,” he said.

With the launch of the 3,570km Yatra in a mega rally, Congress is seeking to signal economic disparities, social polarization and political centralization, while attempting to make gains in what it has often described as a battle of ideologies. After the event at the Mahatma Gandhi Mandapam where Stalin will be present, Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders will walk to the seaside gathering site where the yatra will be officially launched.
