The ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is the biggest public relations program of the Congress party so far, where the leaders of the party will reach out to the common people at the grassroots level. The Congress has been attacking the government over inflation and unemployment and has been saying that these are common people’s issues and should be discussed in all forums.

That the BJP and its spokespersons are trying to divert attention from the Congress’ campaign against inflation and unemployment and the ‘Bharat Jodo’ Yatra.
Maken said, “The Congress party and Rahul Gandhi are fighting against price rise in Parliament and on the road and for public interest. Inflation and unemployment are increasing inside the country, but the government remains insensitive. Looking at the tenure of the last eight years of the Modi government, the question that arises is whether the tax was cut in any way, was there any relief given to the public? Maken claimed that only corporate tax was cut so that industrialist friends of the government could benefit.
