Former Assam Youth Congress President Angkita Dutta, expelled from the party last year, staged a protest on January 18 as Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra entered Assam. Dutta, who claims to be a victim of sexual assault by a fellow party member, demanded justice from the Congress leader.
During her speech, Angkita Dutta mentioned that she had been in exile for the past 10 months and sought justice, but instead, she was suspended from the party. She asserted that despite not being a part of Congress during this time, she worked to strengthen the party. Dutta expressed hope that Rahul Gandhi would provide her with justice and stated that she believed in the concept of “Nyay” (justice) he introduced during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.
“I come out to seek Nyay (Justice). He has given me a ray of hope. When he started Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, I also saw a ray of hope that I would get Nyay,” she added.
The fifth day of Congress’ Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra resumed on the same day from Nagaland’s Tuli to Jorhat in Assam. Rahul Gandhi, addressing the public, criticized the BJP-RSS and accused them of causing economic, social, and political injustice across the country. He also highlighted issues in Manipur and Nagaland, questioning the status of promises made by Prime Minister Modi.
On Congress’ official handle, the party emphasized that the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra would persist until justice is achieved, stating, “Today is the fifth day of the ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’. The public is moving forward united with us in this ‘Nyay Yatra’ against the ‘injustice’ spread in the country. This journey will continue… until we get the right to justice.”
