Tomorrow’s rally will not be person or party-specific, but to save democracy, Constitution: Cong


The Indian National Congress said on Saturday that Sunday’s rally will not be ‘person-specific or of one party’ but to save the democracy and Constitution of the country and will be called ‘Loktantra Bachao’ rally.

Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters here, Congress General Secretary in-charge communication Jairam Ramesh said, “Tomorrow’s rally will not be a rally of one party or save one person but of 28 parties of INDIA alliance. Moreover, it will be necessary to save our democracy and Constitution.”

He said the rally will be attended by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Rahul Gandhi, and other senior leaders of the party, Sharad Pawar, Tejashwi Yadav, D Raja, Akhilesh Yadav, Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, Tiruchi Siva, Jharkhand CM Champai Soren, and Derek O’ Brien.

He added, “Tomorrow’s rally at Ramlila Ground will send a message to the BJP government that the INDIA bloc is united and will fight the election together.”

Calling it the second biggest rally of INDIA bloc after the Shivaji Ground rally in Mumbai, Ramesh said, “Despite failed seat sharing with the TMC in West Bengal, the party will participate in the rally at Ramlila Maidan.”

At the Ramlila ground rally, Ramesh said that the INDIA parties will raise issues like price of rice, unemployment, financial crisis, social disparity, atrocities on farmers, targeting opposition parties, misuse of government agencies, and the Electoral Bonds scam, which is the biggest scam in the history of Independent India.

Slamming the government for targeting the opposition, Ramesh said, “The government, by misusing the central agencies, is arresting elected Ministers and Chief Ministers. This is nothing but a conspiracy. The Prime Minister wants all opposition parties to become handicapped.”

He hoped that thousands of people would participate in the rally tomorrow. UNI RBE AKS
