The country with the world’s largest democracy, where equality is talked about at every stage, Every day in this country, pictures of people slapping each other on the cheeks while talking about such mysticism come up, Today there is one more picture, which will take us 2800 km journey from Gujarat to Assam.

Jadav Gogoi from the Nongao district of Assam came to Vapi in Gujarat in search of work and was working as a laborer here. He was also sacked as soon as the lockdown was declared on March 25. It was not easy for a person from Assam to seek refuge in Gujarat immediately and he had to leave for his homeland like millions of forced laborers of this country, but this homeland was far away. Assam, the northeastern state of India, just across the border from Gujarat.
This 2800 km is not just a distance covered by one person, it is the distance of the struggle of millions of helpless and helpless people of this country. Remember the picture of Kota when the governments sent a bus equipped with police and administration to pick up the children of the millionaire father by blowing up the flag of lockdown, neither he was fired, nor he was hungry nor his family was in trouble, but still, he was brought, And the other is this picture, where a person reaches a distance of 2800 km of his compulsion.
This is the gap between the rich and the poor in this country, this is the gap between the compelled and the wealthy in this country, this is the gap between the millionaire and the millionaire in the country, and the gap is widening today instead of narrowing.
This is the feat done by Jadav Gogoi of Assam to reach his homeland but the government. This Rakram is not only the feat of Jadav Gogoi, it is also your feat. There is also the feat of a blunt government system and a mockery of democracy.
