Security Apprehensions Raised by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, highlighting serious concerns about the security of Rahul Gandhi during the ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Assam.

Kharge alleged that the Yatra has faced multiple “attacks” by BJP workers, and he expressed dissatisfaction with the security arrangements provided by the Assam Police, despite Rahul Gandhi having Z+ security. The Congress leader urged Amit Shah to intervene and take necessary measures to ensure the safety of Rahul Gandhi and all participants in the yatra.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra, a nationwide foot march initiated by the Congress party, aims to address various social, economic, and political issues while fostering unity among the weaker sections of society. The Congress has positioned the yatra as a platform to voice opposition against the policies implemented by the Narendra Modi government.

Clash Details and Injuries Reported

During the recent clash, Assam Congress President Bhupen Kumar Borah and Congress leader Debabrata Saikia were reportedly injured. Top officials of the Assam Police were present during the incident, as the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra rally, led by Rahul Gandhi, sought entry into Guwahati city.
