Former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Thursday said there should be “no doubt” that incumbent president Rahul Gandhi+ is now “my boss, too,” reported news agency ANI.
“We have a new Congress president and on your behalf and my own I wish him all the best. He is now my boss, too. Let there be no doubt about that,” ANI quoted her as saying.
She made the comments while speaking at the Congress parliamentary party meet.
Sonia slammed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre for engaging in “maximum publicity, minimum government” and “maximum marketing, minimum delivery,” reported PTI.
She alleged a “systematic assault” on various institutions of democracy. She charged the government for using investigative agencies as instruments to target political rivals.
“It has been almost four years since this government came to power. This has been a period in which institutions have come under systematic assault – Parliament itself, judiciary, media and civil society. Investigative agencies have been let loose against political opponents,” she said.
“Violence against minorities, Dalits is not sporadic, but orchestrated to polarise society for narrow political gains,” she added.
Sonia also appreciated her party’s performance in the recent Assembly elections in Gujarat and by-polls in Rajasthan.
“We performed very creditably under tough circumstances in Gujarat and recent by-election results in Rajasthan were huge. This shows winds of change are coming. I am sure Karnataka too will underline the resurgence of Congress,” she said.
The former Congress chief used her speech as a clarion call to party leaders for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, urging them to be “in a state of readiness.”
