Speaking at the Congress party’s 84th plenary in New Delhi, the party’s former President Sonia Gandhi vehemently attacked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his power hungry politics. Sonia termed Modi’s policies as ‘dramebaazi’ and divisive for the country.
“People have now understood that his (Modi’s) 2014 promises of ‘sabka saath sabka vikas’ and ‘na khaoonga na khane dunga’ and his ‘Mann ki Baat’ are nothing but pure ‘dramebaazi'”, Sonia said.
Sonia dubbed Modi’s 2014 poll pledge to pursue inclusive development and crackdown on corruption as mere ‘showboating’. She further chided the Modi-led BJP of turning blind to people’s love for Congress.
The veteran leader from the illustrious Gandhi family went on to say that all the pro-poor policies of the UPA government have been reversed during the current NDA rule. Sonia vowed to unite all the like-minded parties to challenge the BJP-RSS combine in the 2019 polls. On the other hand, Sonia’s son and Congress’ President Rahul Gandhi will deliver his speech at the plenary today.
