Rahul Gandhi Advocates for Collective Empathy in Post-Nyay Yatra Address

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi emphasized the need for a “combined consciousness” while addressing the Nyay Sankalp Sabha in Mumbai following the conclusion of his 63-day long Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

During his speech at the Nyay Sankalp Sabha in Mumbai on Sunday, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi highlighted, “If India is a country of ‘Mohabbat’ (love), then why is hatred being spread? We accuse the BJP of spreading hatred, but there must be a reason behind this animosity. The root cause of hatred is injustice. Every day in this country, injustice is being perpetrated against the poor, farmers, Dalits, women, and youth.”

Reflecting on his journey during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Gandhi remarked, “Papers are being leaked, farmers are not receiving MSPs, laborers are deprived of minimum wages, and small workers are burdened by GST. At every turn, people approached me and shared their experiences of injustice.”

Calling for empathy towards fellow citizens, the Congress leader stated that there is a lack of “combined consciousness” among the populace. He asserted, “While individuals may recognize the injustices they face, they often overlook the injustices suffered by others. Without acknowledging the injustices faced by fellow citizens, no movement can gain traction.”

Gandhi further elaborated, “Only about 5 percent of people receive justice, with the courts, government, and other institutions catering to their needs. However, the remaining 90 percent of the population continues to endure injustice.”

Regarding the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Gandhi emphasized, “During the yatra, I was not alone; millions of people walked alongside me. The strength of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra lay not in Rahul Gandhi alone, but in the collective efforts of all those who supported me. We must unite and fight together.”

Addressing the clash between ideologies, Gandhi remarked, “The BJP advocates for centralized political control, believing that wisdom resides in a single individual, while farmers, laborers, and youth are considered lacking in knowledge. However, I firmly believe that a farmer in our nation possesses knowledge equal to that of a scientist.”

Following the conclusion of the 63-day Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, days ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and actor Swara Bhaskar, led the ‘Jan Nyay Padyatra’ from Mani Bhavan Sangrahalaya to August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai on Sunday.
