MP and President Yuva Morcha (BJP)  Anurag Thakur on expressed his gratitude to the people of the country for their affection and support during his Rashtriya Ekta Yatra which started from Kolkata on January 12 and ended on Republic Day. Calling the Yatra as a historic reassertion of India’s surging youth towards nation building,  Thakur said going ahead his party would build on the goodwill generated and engage in many more constructive political programmes aimed at engaging with youth.
“We have been successful in our endeavor to excite and rejuvenate India’s youth into proactively taking the cause of national integration and sovereignty,” Shri Thakur said. He had a special word of appreciation for the media. “The message of the Yatra could not have reached millions of nationalist countrymen but for your support,” Shri Thakur said. “At a time when the country is faced with crisis of governance and faith of people in government is at an all-time low, the media has a tough job at hand. By highlighting mainstream political activities like the Yatra you have reached strong political messages to the people,” he added.
However, Shri Thakur slammed both the Central and Jammu & Kashmir governments for their high-handed and undemocratic interventions in trying to scuttle the peaceful and nationalist Yatra. “I am ashamed the Government which should have given us protection and ensured we went to Lal Chowk to hoist the National Flag succumbed to the pressure of the separatists and prevented us from reaching there,” he said.
The young BJP leader expressed shock at the mischievous role played by the government in returning one train full of Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha workers. “This is unheard of and an extremely shameful act. This also reflects the nervousness of the government. Such repressive measures exposes the bankruptcy of the government,” slammed  Thakur.

He also condemned the illegal detention of three senior BJP leaders –  Arun Jaitley, Smt Sushma Swaraj and Shri Anant Kumar. “On a day when the
whole nation was celebrating Republic Day, two leaders of opposition in the lower and upper house of the Parliament along with another senior BJP leader were made to spend their time under house arrest. What could have been more undemocratic than this,” rued Shri Thakur warning the agencies to stay away from such repressive tactics.

“I also seek an apology from the Omar Abdullah government for using third degrees on National Office Bearers, State President and other youth workers who were illegally detained and tortured. The Police hurled filthy abuses on our boys and this can’t be tolerated. This is a deplorable act,” he added

The Rashtriya Ekta Yatra, besides reviving the spirits of Yuva Morcha workers, has awakened large number of youth towards the critical challenges facing the country today. “During the course of my 15 days (3100 k.m.) Yatra.
I came across hundreds of youngsters who are willing to constructively engage in nation building process. They are outraged at the unbearable price rise, large number of corruption cases, apathy of UPA government towards the suffering of common people, and degeneration in public life. They want to raise their voice against such blatant disregard for democratic norms and we at Yuva Morcha are adamant to voice these very genuine concerns,” Shri Thakur said.

He also informed the BJYM would launch few constructive programmes for the Youth with the twin objectives of guiding them towards achieving their desired goals as well as seeking their participation in mainstream political process.
“We strongly believe we need the participation of modern youth into the mainstream political process to make our democracy more vibrant and robust,” he said.

“The country is in a chaotic state today and people across strata have lost faith in the Government. Governance is miserably and majorly missing. Corrupt and traitors are thriving in this age of dark governance. We seek it as our duty to rise to the occasion and launch aggressive campaigns and address the deepening of
chaos and crisis. Country’s youth is with us and we shall succeed in our mission,” said  Thakur.
