SILCHAR: The much-hyped 'Hath se Hath Jodo' rally of Congress began in Dholai on Thursday in a lukewarm response among the commoners. The rally, led by party's central general secretary Jitendra Singh, distributed letters signed by Rahul Gandhi in Bengali language and urged the people to support them in their fight against divisive politics of the ruling party. The rally was attended by APCC president Bhupen Bora, working president Kamalakha Dey Purkayastha, state Mahila Congress chief Meera Barthakur, Silchar DCC president Tamal Kanti Banik.
Earlier addressing a rally, Jitendra Singh lambasted the BJP. He said, the present government in real sense is selling out the country to the corporate houses. "It is in true sense a party of traders and a government of middlemen," Singh said. Underlining price rise, unemployment, poverty, Singh said, both Union and State governments had miserably failed to address the issues those had been haunting the commoners for last eight years.
On Wednesday evening, APCC team led by Bhupen Bora distributed Gandhi's letters to the passerby in Silchar towns. Speaking to the mediapersons, Bora said, as far as he remains the APCC president, there would be no alliance with the AIUDF. Bora said, Badrauddin Ajmal had openly admitted that since he was a businessman, he had no objection in allying with the party that would give him more profit. Bora further said, alliance with the AIUDF in last election in 2021 had cost the party a huge damage. 'Hath se Hath Jodo' rally would cover all the 15 Assembly segments in Barak Valley.
