Manipur govt approves venue for Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ | India News



NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi‘s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will start from Manipur on January 14 with “limited number of participants.” The Manipur government on Wednesday approved the Hapta Kangjeibung ground venue for flagging off the yatra. The approval by the Manipur government came eight days after the Congress had approached it for permission.
The order issued by the Imphal East district magistrate’s office said, “Only flagging off of the Yatra with limited number of participants is hereby allowed on January 14 to prevent any untoward incident and disturbance in law and order.The number and name of the participants shall be provided in advance to this office to enable this office to take up all necessary precautionary measures”.
The order further informed that the Imphal East district superintendent of police has submitted a report stating that a huge crowd is expected during the opening ceremony of Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra at the venue. In view of prevailing law and order situation in the state, the huge gathering may create law and order problems.
“Moreover prohibiton under Section 144 Cr Pc is also in force in Imphal East district,” it added.
Earlier today, the Congress had claimed that the Manipur government has declined to give its nod for the venue where the party’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ is scheduled to begin on January 14.
The party termed the state government’s decision as a “violation of people’s rights.” However, the grand old party made it clear that it will start the yatra from Manipur “at any cost.”
