Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra was indeed stopped from entering Guwahati city on January 23rd, 2024, leading to tensions and protests.

When the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, led by Rahul Gandhi, was prevented from entering Guwahati on Tuesday, Congressmen ripped down barriers and chanted slogans in anger.

The Congress workers had to be stopped by force by the police, who had erected barricades at two locations to block the Yatra from approaching the city limits.


What happened:

  • The Yatra, led by Rahul Gandhi, aimed to enter Guwahati as part of its itinerary through Assam.
  • However, upon reaching the city limits, they were met with police barricades and denied entry.
  • This sparked protests from Congress workers, who broke barricades and raised slogans against the decision.

Reasons for denial:

  • The official reason given by the Assam government was concerns about potential disruption of public order and safety.
  • This came amidst allegations from the Congress party that the BJP-led government was deliberately trying to obstruct the Yatra.
  • Additionally, there were reports of the Sri Sri Sankardev Satra, a revered religious site Gandhi wished to visit, requesting him to visit after a specific date due to ongoing ceremonies.

Current situation:

  • As of today, January 23rd, 2024, late evening, the Yatra remains stationed outside Guwahati.
  • Discussions are ongoing between Congress leaders and authorities regarding finding a solution and potentially allowing the Yatra entry into the city.
  • The incident has generated significant media attention and political debate, with both sides making accusations and clarifications.
