Congress president Rahul Gandhi hoisted the flag on the 134th foundation day of Congress

Congress president Rahul Gandhi hoisted the flag on the 134th foundation day of Congress.

Today, the Congress Day is being celebrated in the country. Various programs are being organized on this occasion. On the occasion of the 134th foundation day of Congress, party President Rahul Gandhi hoisted the flag and celebrated the cake on Friday.

Gandhi reached party headquarters along with senior leaders and joined the flag hoisting program of the party. After the flag hoisting program, Gandhi cut the cake with former prime minister Manmohan Singh. On the occasion of Congress’s Foundation Day program, party treasurer Ahmed Patel, senior leader Motilal Vora, general secretary Ashok Gehlot and many other leaders and workers were present.

After the program, Ahmed Patel tweeted that 133 years ago today, the world’s largest mass movement began. Since then, this movement has kept itself dedicated towards nation building. He said that history is a witness that those who tried to destroy this movement became the history themselves. This movement is Congress.

Let us tell you that Congress was formed in 1885 in the British Raj. Among his founders, grandfathers like Dada Bhai Naoroji, Ao Hume and Dinsha Prabha were included. When the country got independence in 1947, then Congress became the first major political party in the country. From the independence to the 16 general elections held in 2016, the Congress had won with 6 full majority. Apart from this, four times the Congress led coalition governments at the center. So far, seven Prime Ministers of the country have been from the Congress side. The first number was Jawaharlal Nehru and recently Manmohan Singh was.

The Congress continued to lose in the states since 2014, but the party is in the midst of winning a win in Punjab, then Karnataka and now Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh. Before going to the Lok Sabha elections of 2019, Congress is totally aggressive, the party’s attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi led by Rahul Gandhi continues.

Instead of Bharat Mata ki Jai Modi should say Ambani ki Jai – Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi recently in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan has made a statement that “Instead of Bharat Mata ki Jai Modi should say Ambani ki Jai, Mehul Choksy ki Jai, Neerav Modi ki Jai and Lalit Modi ki Jai. Rahul Gandhi while addressing the Jhunjhunu rally said that Modi talks a lot about the betterment of Motherland but what he does is that he works for the betterment of Ambani’s and Adani’s. He added that if he can wave-off 3,50,000 crores to the top 15 businessmen then why he is not waving-off the loan of farmers.

Rahul Gandhi also said that PM Modi never mentions Rafale deal during his speech because he knows that the public will shout ‘Chaukidar Chor Hai’. He further added India’s richest Industrialist marketed Narendra modi and made him Prime Minister and now he is clearing his dues by waving-off their loans.

Rahul calls Modi autocrat, incompetent and arrogant

Autocrat. Incompetent. Arrogant. These are some of words Congress chief Rahul Gandhi used to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi while speaking to parliamentarians from the Congress party today. Gandhi, who was addressing his first Congress Parliamentary Party meeting as party chief, used the opportunity to target the Modi government on issues ranging from economy and unemployment to women’s safety and mob lynching. When Narendra Modi was elected prime minister in 2014, he had said that “India had been a slow ‘passenger train’ for seventy years after Independence and now under his guidance and rule the country would become a sleek and shining ‘magical train’ destined for ‘achhe din’,” Rahul said at the parliamentary meet.

“Four years of Modi rule later, sadly, India today looks more like a train that is being driven to disaster by an autocratic, incompetent and arrogant driver, who does not care what happens to the passengers he is responsible for,” Rahul said in his sharp attack on the prime minister.”The crisis of governance in India under the Narendra Modi government — marked by corruption, total economic failure, incompetence and spread of social divisiveness — is at its peak,” Rahul said.

Rahul also claimed that there was “a rising tide of anger” against the Modi government and that the “people of India are looking up to the Congress and its allied parties to help remove the Modi government”. A large part of the Congress chief’s speech was devoted to criticisms that Rahul Gandhi has voiced before.

 

Ending his speech to his party MPs, Rahul reiterated his goal of preventing PM Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party from coming to power and said that it had become the Congress’s responsibility “to ensure that the forces of hate, division and violence that are trampling upon the Constitution of India are prevented from coming back to power.”

#ModiWave: Following Modi’s big win in UP/UK we now have a clear picture of 2019 Elections.

Narendra Modi has swept Uttar Pradesh as no one had since the post-Emergency Janata wave.

Narendra Modi has now risen as India’s most popular mass leader since Indira Gandhi in her heyday and he has earned it all from his own effort rather than build on a legacy. Second, he has acquired control of the ruling party as no Indian leader did, not even Rajiv Gandhi, since Indira Gandhi. It follows that it redefines BJP for the first time as a party with a supremo, a prime vote-catcher and a personality cult of its own. With him, his brilliant, all-conquering electoral field marshal Amit Shah has also risen as the most powerful chief of a national party since K. Kamaraj in the 1960s.

Modi is the first leader from outside the heartland to acquire such national stature, the first, let’s qualify, after independence. At the risk of being misconstrued, let me add that the last non-heartland leader to acquire such pan-Indian stature was only the Mahatma. No comparisons here, except that he too came from Gujarat. Modi has now acquired an aura that dazzles beyond partisan politics. Even those who disagree with him, and vote against him, say they do not suspect his personal integrity and good intention — the reason they’ve been forgiving on demonetisation after suffering severely from it.

Modi’s most loyal supporters also acknowledge that on the economy, reform, social messaging, his record halfway past his first term as prime minister has been patchy. “Wait for his second term,” they say, “learn from his history in Gujarat.” His first term as chief minister was contentious, overly political and divisive. In the second, he focused on the economy and infrastructure and built the springboard for national power later. It was also in his second term that he totally defanged the RSS, filed sedition cases against the troublesome VHP leaders and demolished scores of illegally-built temples in his encroachment clearing drive.

It would be reasonable to believe that this sweeping victory has brought that second term forward as 2019 seems more a certainty now. The defeat of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab and destruction in Goa should also detox his mind of any insecurities in Gujarat later this year. His party and the RSS are totally beholden to him. He has that greatest weapon, a brahmastra if you so prefer, that a mass leader has: the ability to bring votes. Or, to put it more simply, the ability to get lamp-posts elected.

The question now is, how he will use this power. Will he get off the electoral juggernaut now and focus on economic change as he did in Gujarat 2007 onwards? Will he invest his phenomenal persuasive skills along with his credibility to sell more challenging ideas of change: economic and governance reform, reducing the size of the government, makes durable peace with the neighbours and make future secure for our future generations.
