Congress questioned Ram's existence, now wants to be identified with Pandavas: BJP

Congress questioned Ram's existence, now wants to be identified with Pandavas: BJP

Putting an end to speculation of elections to the Congress Working Committee, the party on Sunday authorised President Rahul Gandhi to nominate leaders to the party's top decision-making body.

The Congress leader added that the corrupt and powerful today "control conversation" in the country and the "name Modi symbolises the collusion between crony capitalists and the Prime Minister".

The Congress on Sunday attacked the Modi government saying that the economy was in the hands of "ignorant and incompetent policy makers" who have derailed growth through "reckless and weird policies". A party which was thrown out of power because they were clearly involved in about 12 lakh crores of corruption which are at various stages (of trial) in different courts. "We are humans, we make mistakes, "he said. In 10 years, I want to see India's vision there", he said". And this party chooses to be called, label itself Pandavas. "And their son and grandson is talking about press freedom", Ms Sitharaman said. Accusing the Mr Gandhi of insulting the Hindus with his reference to religion and his party of being anti-technology for its insistence on a return to ballot paper, she left the most crucial points for the last. "And he must be thinking that they will not be able to go through in 2019", Rahul said.

"I would like to point out what Mrs. Indira Gandhi did in compromising the independence of the judiciary just because one judgment went against her".




On Rahul's promise of protection to media, she said Rajiv Gandhi brought a Press Defamation Bill in 1988 and later withdrew it because of protests.

"The Congress president referred to our party president Shri Amit Shah as being accused of murder when a court of law has cleared him of charges. This is a fake and false motivated campaign by someone who is out on bail on criminal conspiracy of fraud in National Herald case".

Highlighting issues that had come up between India and its neighbours under the Modi dispensation, the former prime minister said it was the task of the country to create pathways for an "environment of support, friendship and moving ahead together". In the past, we had leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel and Subhash Chandra Bose. While the BJP is the voice of an organization, the Congress is the voice of the nation. "Is that your ideology?"

A three-member delegation of Bangladesh Awami League (AL) attended the plenary session of the Indian Congress in New Delhi on Saturday. "Congress has stuck to its agenda which is to peddle fakery".
