Bharat Jodo Yatra : Media notices my T-shirt, but ignores poor farmers, labourers in torn clothes: Rahul Gandhi


Baghpat (UP):  Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said his being in a T-shirt during the Bharat Jodo Yatra was not the real issue, while slamming media for “not noticing” people in torn clothes walking along with him.

Addressing a ‘nukkad sabha’ (street corner meeting) at Baraut on Baghpat-Shamli border during the march, Gandhi also said the purpose of the yatra is to remove hatred and violence being spread in the country and to draw people’s attention towards price rise and unemployment.

Amid talk raging about his wearing T-shirt in the winter during the yatra, he said the media is highlighting his attire but taking “no notice of the poor farmers and labourers walking along with him in torn clothes”. “My being in T-shirt is not a real question, the real question is why are the farmers, poor labourers of the country and their children are in torn clothes, T-shirts and without sweaters,” he said.
