New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi, a central leader of the Indian National Congress, has criticized the Modi government’s indifference towards the situation in Manipur, describing it as a “civil war.”
According to Kashmir Media Service, during his ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ in Chhattisgarh, he condemned the divisive policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), stressing the importance of fostering unity and love in India.
Gandhi highlighted the failure of the BJP and RSS to promote harmony and address issues of hatred. He specifically criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not visiting Manipur despite the ongoing conflict, accusing the government of neglecting the urgent need for intervention and resolution in the state.
Gandhi also took a swipe at the media, alleging that they prioritize trivial matters over pressing issues such as farmer deaths and labor problems. He emphasized the significance of direct engagement with the people, exemplified by his yatra, as a means to bridge the divide between politicians and citizens.
Overall, Gandhi’s remarks underscore a call for immediate action and a more inclusive approach to addressing the challenges faced by the nation, particularly in conflict-affected regions like Manipur.
