Kharge chairs meeting ahead of Rahul’s Yatra; Hits out at Modi Govt


 Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday came down heavily on the Modi Government, charging it with “failing” to address the issues of the common men and “silencing” the elected Opposition from raising their voice.

Chairing a meeting of the AICC office-bearers here ahead of Rahul Gandhi’s “Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra” and the coming Lok Sabha election, Kharge in his inaugural address said, “You all must be aware that the country needs a change and to make it possible, we have to work day and night at the grassroots level and win the confidence of the people.”

He alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had converted Parliament as a platform for greetings and applause and this is not acceptable.

“So, to raise issues related to public, we have to go to the people. And Rahul Gandhi has chosen the Yatra to raise issues pertaining to social, financial justice, price rise, unemployment, caste-based census and other issues being faced by the people of the country.”

He said, “Today the situation is different. There is an alliance of the Opposition called INDIA alliance, and one can see the confusion in BJP due to it. BJP has now understood the power of the opposition alliance.”

The Congress president said the NDA has no success story to tell the country instead it had “ruined” all the assets that were earned in the last 70 years of the country by giving it some of their select friends.

Kharge also informed that there had been progress in the alliance as far as seat sharing is concerned. He urged all the party leaders to meet the voters and talk to them.

The Rajya Sabha MP also asked his party leaders to restrain from making any such comments, which would spoil the image of the party.

He further stated that the Congress’ fight was against the mentality of BJP and RSS.

The Congress should walk on the path shown by great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Subhash Chandra Bose and Sarojini Naidu, he iterated.
