Raipur: Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday said she was glad that her innings could conclude with the party’s mass outreach programme ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ while describing the march as
“a turning point” for the party. The 85th plenary session of the Congress party began on Friday in Nava Raipur, Chhattisgarh.
Addressing the gathering on the second day of Congress’ three-day brainstorming session here, Sonia Gandhi said, “Our victories in 2004 and 2009 along with the able leadership of Dr Manmohan Singh gave me personal satisfaction but what gratifies me most is that my innings could conclude with the Bharat Jodo Yatra, a turning point for Congress.”
The former Congress chief accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre of subverting every institution in the country.
“This is a challenging time for Congress and the country as a whole. BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have captured and subverted every single institution in the country. It ruthlessly silences
any voice of Opposition. It has caused economic ruin by favouring a few businessmen,” added the Rae Bareli MP in a veiled attack on Centre amid the row over Hindenburg’s report on the Adani group
