Rahul’s join India journey started from Tamil Nadu, so let’s talk about Tamil Nadu first. Party MLA and State Congress Treasurer Ruby R. The manner in which Manoharan is being opposed shows the rift between central and state level leaders.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi is taking out the Join India Yatra. Meanwhile, he tried to at least unite the Congress party, but the opposite happened. Rahul Gandhi has so far visited states like Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra etc. To show that in all these states, Congress leaders may have gone on a padayatra with Rahul Gandhi, but the way they clashed with each other as soon as Rahul left shows that the Congress needs a big and deep introspection. Not only this, in the states where Rahul Gandhi’s tour is to reach, there is also a head-to-head situation in the Congress.
Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra started from Tamil Nadu, so let’s talk about Tamil Nadu first. Party MLA and State Congress Treasurer Ruby R. The manner in which Manoharan is being opposed shows the rift between central and state level leaders. Manoharan was suspended by the disciplinary committee of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee and within hours the suspension was stayed by the All India Congress Committee. Apart from this, many Congress leaders are fighting among themselves in Tamil Nadu.
As for Kerala, local Congress leaders are portraying Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s meeting with other leaders as factionalism, which angers Shashi Tharoor. The differences in the Congress are evident from the recent statements of the Leader of Opposition in the Kerala Assembly. Even when Shashi Tharoor was the Congress president candidate, the Kerala unit of the Congress was not united in supporting him.

Rahul Gandhi also went to Karnataka, but the Congress was defeated in several local body elections there during the same period. Apart from this, Congress state working president Satish Jarkiholi made such a statement against Hindus which created a huge controversy and he had to apologize. A photo of Rahul Gandhi with Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar suggests that the party is united in Karnataka but the photo met a similar fate in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. It may be mentioned that after the results of the last assembly elections of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, when there were two candidates each for the post of Chief Minister, Rahul Gandhi was holding the hands of Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia in one photo and Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot in the other. Photographs were taken holding hands but that unity was limited to photographs only.
Rahul Gandhi also went to Telangana. But the process of party MLAs leaving Congress and joining BJP is not stopping there. Now former minister M. Shashidhar Reddy is also going to leave Congress and join BJP. Not only this, in the recent Telangana assembly by-elections, the Congress not only lost its seat but slipped to the third position. Apart from this, the defection in Telangana Congress shows that the party has not been able to stay united here.

Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra has also passed through Maharashtra, but the way Rahul Gandhi created a ruckus there by making insulting statements against Veer Savarkar has angered Hindutva supporters. Not only this, because of Rahul Gandhi’s statement, the opposition alliance MVA has also started showing rift as Uddhav Thackeray and Sanjay Raut have opposed the statement against Vir Savarkar. There are also reports from Maharashtra that several senior Congress leaders are preparing to switch parties ahead of the BMC elections.
However, Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is currently in Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh Congress media in-charge Narendra Saluja joined the BJP as soon as Rahul Gandhi arrived there. On the other hand, even before the Bharat Jodo Yatra reaches Rajasthan, the kind of brashness seen in the football party shows that the Bharat Jodo Yatra has failed to make any impact. Apart from this, the Bharat Jodo Yatra did not go to Gujarat, but the way Rahul Gandhi took Medha Patkar along with him during the Padyatra seems to be hurting the Congress in Gujarat. Because Medha Patkar, who started the Narmada movement, in a way opposed the provision of tap water to every house in Gujarat. This photo alone has given BJP a big point to oppose Congress in Gujarat.
