Sonia Gandhi Attacks Modi Government, Says BJP Is the 'Enemy of Pluralism'

BJP chief Amit Shah

The women's wing of the Goa Congress has said that it will send bangles to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, protesting against the attack on Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi's auto in Gujarat, two days ago. In her CWC speech, So nia said, "We must not forget there were organisations and individuals who opposed the 1942 movement and actually collaborated with the colonial government. Anguished by assault on freedom; self-appointed vigilantes are a threat to liberty and enemy of pluralism and diversity", Ms Gandhi said at the meeting.

"Far from curbing their onslaught, the government of the day encourages and empowers them to flout the rule of law and unleash oppression".

The CWC passed the resolution commemorating the event a day before the party joins the special session of Parliament to mark the anniversary of the decisive initiative in the freedom struggle. "Their political descendants are the very people who today hold high office and have arrogated to themselves the role of torch bearers of our freedom", she said. "It is done by their people so why would they condemn it", Mr Gandhi added.

State television said another tourist had been pulled out alive from rubble in a different part of Jiuzhaigou. Up to 100 people are feared dead and thousands more injured in the quake, the Chinese government said.

The Indian National Congress had launched the Quit India campaign in 1942 that called for India's immediate independence from Britain.

Led by Congress Party's women wing President Amita Bhushan, dozens of female Congress members chanted anti-BJP slogans and burnt an effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Boring Road Crossing.

Singh said: "I am deeply concerned about India's youth & peasantry as multiple problems persist post demonetisation and GST".
