NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Sonia Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of negatively impacting the country’s dignity and diminishing democracy during the event marking official launch of party’s manifesto n Rajasthan’s Jaipur.
“Today our country’s democracy is in danger. Democratic institutions are being destroyed and a conspiracy is being hatched to change our Constitution,” she alleged, adding, “This is a dictatorship and we all will give a reply to this.”
“Considering himself great, Modi ji is tearing apart the dignity of the country and its democracy,” Sonia Gandhi said.
She alleged various tactics were being employed to coerce opposition leaders into joining the BJP. Sonia, said that for the past decade, the government has contributed to issues such as unemployment, inflation, economic crisis and inequality.
“In last 10 years, the government has left no stone unturned to promote unemployment, inflation, inequality, atrocities’, Sonia said in Jaipur.
She said that everyone should fight against the injustice persisting all around and find justice.
“Once upon a time, through their hard struggle, our great ancestors searched and earned independence for the country from the darkness of slavery. After so many years, that great light has dimmed somewhat. The darkness of injustice has increased all around. We all must resolve that we will fight against it and find justice,” the Congress leader said.
Earlier at the event, the party’s national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra referenced the arrests of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren by federal agencies, suggesting that the opposition was under siege under the BJP’s rule.
Priyanka Gandhi criticized the prevalent high levels of unemployment and inflation, alongside allegations of paper leaks occurring across various states, lamenting the lack of representation for the poor and farmers.
Congress leaders formally unveiled the Congress manifesto during a rally held in Jaipur at Vidhyadhar Nagar on Saturday afternoon.
