Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi today launched an all-out attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that his pre-poll promises of combating corruption and ensuring inclusive development were “only dramebazi’ and a trick to grab power.
Gandhi, in her address at the 84th Congress Plenary Session, gave a clarion call to the party men to be ready for any kind of sacrifice to strengthen the party and to make the county free from discrimination, vendetta politics and arrogance.
The three-day Indian National Congress’ 84th plenary session commenced on Friday at the Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in New Delhi. Rahul Gandhi, who is attending his first meet at chief of the party, addressed the gathering on Saturday. In his inaugural speech, he said only Congress can unite a ‘divided nation’. He added, “Only Congress can show the way for this nation. This country belongs to all irrespective of which religion caste community one belongs to. We will work for all.” During the session, Congress is expected to discuss and adopt two resolutions, one political and the other on jobs and poverty alleviation. Party leaders will also draft resolutions which will be adopted at the conclave over the next two days. The Congress Working Committee members will be picked by the party president on the concluding day of the meet.
It is attended by Congress chief ministers, state Congress presidents and Congress legislature party leaders from all states. Former prime minister Manmohan Singh and former party president Sonia Gandhi were also present.
