Congress leader Rahul Gandhi resumed his Bharat Jodo Yatra, or “unite India march” on Friday in Haryana where he hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party over issues surrounding unemployment, demonetization, Goods, and Services Tax (GST), and the Agnipath scheme.
The march had entered Haryana from neighboring Uttar Pradesh on Thursday evening. However, Mr. Gandhi left for Delhi to meet his ailing mother Sonia Gandhi the same evening. He resumed the march from Sanofi Khurd in the Panipat district on Friday.
Taking a dig at the BJP-led-government at the Centre, Mr. Gandhi said the decisions of implementing demonetization and GST taken by the BJP were not just two policies, but weapons to destroy small and medium businesses. “..GST and demonetization have destroyed business in the country,” he said, addressing a gathering at Panipat.
