With the surge of Covid cases in China and several other countries, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday cancelled its Jan Aakrosh Yatra led by BJP State President Dr Satish Poonia in Rajasthan.
“Bharatiya Janata Party’s Janakrosh Yatra against the misrule of Congress, Jungle Raj, and corruption in Rajasthan was getting immense public support, but keeping in view the general precautions and instructions of Covid, it has been postponed till the next time in the public interest,” Tweeted BJP State President Dr Satish Poonia.
While addressing the general assembly of Jan Aakrosh Yatra in Banswara and Kushalgarh he said that the way people are showing resentment towards the Congress government, it is certain that in 2023 the people will bid goodbye to them.
“I have been in Vagad area for three days. The way people are showing resentment towards the Congress government, it is certain that in 2023 Congress will bid farewell from here and the sun of BJP will rise with full glory,” Tweeted Satish Poonia.
Ahead of the Rajasthan assembly polls, the Jan Aakrosh Yatra was started in the state on December 1.
The BJP’s yatra comes ahead of the 2023 Rajasthan Assembly elections which will likely take place around December next year. The election will choose the representatives of all the 200 seats in the state’s Legislative Assembly.
