Bhupesh Baghel, the chief minister of Chhattisgarh, attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday, saying that the public had reacted favourably to Congressman Rahul Gandhi’s “Bharat Jodo Yatra” but not the BJP.

The Chhattisgarh chief minister declared that the reception to the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” has been excellent upon his return from Kerala and Himachal Pradesh. “There will be a sizable turnout for the Bharat Jodo Yatra. We also had a sizable rally in Himachal, where the primary concerns were Agniveer, unemployment, and inflation. Since the BJP administration has not kept its promises over the past five years, the people have grown bitter “Added Baghel.

The Congress MP accused the BJP of “promoting hate” when questioned about the BJP’s philosophy and the connection of the RSS to Ram and Krishna.

“Whether it was Vanar, Shabri, Kevat, or Jatayu, Bhagwan Ram gave everyone a hug. Even as he was near death, Ravan sent his brother Laxman to learn from him. Krishna fought the battle for truth, and Ram was overcome with love and pity. Which direction is BJP headed? Are BJP members influenced by such figures? The BJP just spreads hatred. They only ever discuss exporting people to Pakistan and establishing “Akhand Bharat.” This is what type of politics?” the head of Congress stated.

“India is a diverse country where many different religions have coexisted for a long time. The fact that our nation has embraced every religion and culture makes us strong. And the BJP now is urging people to travel to Pakistan. They claim to be the biggest party in the world, but how are they doing down south? Defections are used to form governments everywhere, even in the North East. Despite winning the national elections twice, they are not popular with the general public “The head of the Congress continued.

When challenged about the BJP’s claim that he was the “most-suited” candidate to be the Congress President, Baghel responded that the BJP is afraid of the elections in 2023.

“Dharamlal Kaushik failed to successfully defend his position. For the last 20 years, Brijmohan Agarwal has been attempting to retake the top spot without success. I want to express my gratitude for their recommendations. As I’ve already stated, there are many more senior leaders who could serve as National President than I. The BJP is inviting me to travel to Delhi, as though they are already afraid of losing the 2023 Assembly elections “Added Baghel.

Baghel responded that he himself is looking forward to the nominations for the position of Congress President when questioned about them.

The final day for submissions is Friday; let’s see how many people submit nominations. Even I anticipate seeing which names are called and which ones are withdrawn. The most important thing is that elections are being held in our party, which is a sign of democracy. It’s not like the BJP, where nobody even knew when JP Nadda was elected president once more.

In reference to Chhattisgarh’s impending Adivasi Nritya Mahotsav, the CM stated, “Visits would be made by the MLAs and other offices. A meeting has also been conducted by the chief executive. Additionally, we are inviting many embassies. We had visitors from six different nations the previous year, and this year we anticipate even more visitors.”

When questioned about the murder that took place in Chattisgarh’s Durg district, the CM said, “Whoever is responsible for this will be detained. It is impossible to deny that the occurrence occurred, but I can tell you that serious legal action will be taken.”
