Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Sunday alleged that indigenous, small and cottage-scale industries and artisans are suffering in the country as traders linked to large corporate groups were flooding the markets with Chinese goods.


He was addressing a gathering after his ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ arrived here from Moradabad via Sambhal. Gandhi was greeted in Aligarh by a large number of workers of the Congress and supporters of its INDIA bloc ally Samajwadi Party (SP).

With Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra accompanying him, the Uttar Pradesh Congress posted on ‘X’ in Hindi, “The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra is moving forward with the message of unity, brotherhood and harmony with ‘Jannayak’ and ‘Lok Netri.” Sharing a video of the yatra, the party said, “This crowd will send a message to the coming generations that when a dictator was bent on destroying the integrity, sovereignty and the Constitution of the country, we worked to stop him through this yatra.” Referring to the famous lock industry and artisans of Aligarh, Gandhi said the influx of cheap China-made products was sounding the death knell for the local small and cottage units, while big business houses were reaping a rich harvest.
