On Friday, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi commenced her ‘Chintan Shivir’ address with a strong attack on the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre. She mentioned that the Centre was brutalizing minorities and glorifying Mahatma Gandhi’s killers.

Sonia Gandhi voiced that the brainstorming session gave the Congress an opportunity to discuss amongst us the numerous challenges that the country is facing as a result of the policies of the BJP, RSS, and its affiliates, as well as doing meaningful self-introspection.

Addressing the three-day ‘Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir’ session in Udaipur, Sonia Gandhi asserted that by now it had become abundantly and painfully clear what the Prime Minister and his colleagues really meant by their slogan ‘maximum governance, minimum government.’

She added, “It means keeping our country in a permanent state of polarisation, compelling people to live in a constant state of fear and insecurity, viciously targeting victimizing and often brutalizing minorities who are an integral part of our society and equal citizens of our republic.”

“It means using our societies’ age-old pluralities to divide us and subverting a carefully nurtured idea of unity and diversity. It means threatening and intimidating political opponents, maligning their reputation, jailing them on flimsy pretexts using investigative agencies,” she continued.

The Congress interim president further noted, “It is also an occasion to deliberate on the many tasks ahead of us. It is both ‘Chintan’ about national issues and meaningful ‘aatmachintan’ about our party organization.” She voiced that changes in the organization are the need of the hour and that the party needs to change the way of working.
