Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra: Assam BJP government prevented Rahul Gandhi from entering the temple

It is reported that the Himant Biswa Sharma-led BJP government of Assam has stopped Congress leader Rahul Gandhi from entering the main temple during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

It is reported that the police of Assam have stopped them due to security reasons, and in this background, all activists including Rahul Gandhi are sitting on the road and holding a dharna.

Congress leader KC Venugopal, who tweeted about this, said that despite getting prior permission for our Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra today, Assam authorities are preventing him from visiting the Batadrava Satra temple in Nagaon, the birthplace of scholar Srimantha Sankaradeva. This is new in democracy. The BJP decides who should go to the temple and at what time. This authoritarian regime must realize that its days are numbered. The people of India will not allow such tyranny. “We will not move from here until we bow down to Lord Shankaradeva.”

In the wake of the incident, Rahul Gandhi staged a sit-in in Nagaon along with Congress party workers. On the spot, activists sang the devotional song ‘Raghupathi Raghava Rajaram’.

“We don’t want to create any problems, we just want to pray in the temple,” said Rahul Gandhi. We want to visit the temple. “What crime have we committed that I cannot visit the temple?” he asked.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma had said that the commandos will be deployed on sensitive routes in minority-dominated areas where Rahul Gandhi will go for his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra on Monday, the day of the foundation-laying ceremony of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
