Sonia: 'Arrogant' govt has cast dark shadow on Parliamentary democracy

Sonia: 'Arrogant' govt has cast dark shadow on Parliamentary democracy

Today, the president of the Congress party Sonia Gandhi summoned the meeting of Congress Working Committee to lay a foundation for Rahul Gandhi as the President.

The BJP on Monday hit back at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for her criticism of the government over likely curtailment of Parliament's Winter Session, saying her charge was a "lie" and would rank among the "greatest hypocrisies" in recent times. "The government is mistaken if it thinks that by locking the temple of democracy it will escape constitutional accountability ahead of the assembly elections", the Congress president said. Assembly polls are due to be held in Gujarat in two phases on December 9 nd 14.

"The government is forcefully trying to change history of modern India by erasing contributions made by Nehru, Indira Gandhi", Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala quoted Sonia Gandhi as saying in the CWC.

During the course of the meeting, the CWC approved the election schedule for the post of the president which mentions 4 December as the last date for filing nominations.

She further said that the Centre was "ill prepared" to implement Goods and Services Tax and demonetisation which left millions of people suffering. As per the reports, the Congress party Vice-president Rahul Gandhi is the only candidate in the fray.

"Unlike Modi - who has associated himself with such ideas as Swachh Bharat - there is no distinctive area with which Rahul has been able to associate himself till now", she said. After the meeting, the CWC also condoled the death of its veteran leader and former Union Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi.

Congress leaders indicated that Sonia is unlikely to seek re-election from Rae Bareli in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Some state units had already passed the resolution to appoint him as party chief.

Sonia Gandhi, now 70, has been unwell in recent years and scaled down her public appearances because of the same.

Having been forced by the Election Commission to complete the process of internal elections, the party will hold elections for the first time in the last seven years.
