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

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is yet to reveal his hand but there are clear signs that his tenure is a work in progress

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.

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

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