Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, during his inaugural rally in support of the INDIA bloc candidates, emphasized the primary goal of safeguarding the Constitution. Addressing concerns about the BJP's alleged intentions to undermine constitutional values, Gandhi urged the public to prioritize the preservation of democratic principles.

Gandhi criticized the BJP for allegedly misusing governmental agencies like the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to suppress dissent. He highlighted instances where opposition leaders, including Arvind Kejriwal and Hemant Soren, were reportedly targeted, emphasizing the need to defend democratic institutions.

Attack on Prime Minister Modi

Taking aim at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi accused him of favoring wealthy elites over small businessmen and farmers. He cited examples such as the waiver of significant debts for billionaires like Adani and Ambani, contrasting it with the struggles faced by ordinary citizens. Gandhi also criticized Modi's policies like demonetization and the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which he claimed negatively impacted businesses.

Who all were present?

The rally witnessed the presence of senior party leaders such as P Chidambaram, Ajay Maken, and Delhi Congress chief Devender Yadav, alongside AAP representatives. This display of unity underscored the collaborative efforts between Congress and AAP as part of the INDIA bloc to challenge the ruling BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
