Rahul my boss too, will work with 'like-minded parties' to defeat BJP: Sonia

Friday, February 09, 2018

New Delhi: Declaring that Congress president Rahul Gandhi was now her boss too, Sonia Gandhi today said "winds of change are coming" and she would work with "like- minded parties" to ensure the BJP's defeat in the next elections.

Sending out an upbeat message backing her son's leadership, Sonia Gandhi told MPs at a meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party that the process to revive the party's fortunes had begun after the recent results in Gujarat and Rajasthan.

Pushing the Congress into poll gear, the CPP chairperson also launched an all-out attack on the BJP and the Modi government and alleged that it was orchestrating violence against minorities to polarise society for narrow political gains.

This would be seen in Karnataka too, which goes to the polls in a few months, the former Congress president, who handed over the party's reins to Rahul Gandhi after 19 years in December last year, told the CPP.

Asking the party to be ready for polls, she said 2014 was a severe setback, "but I am convinced that it was an aberration".

Noting that people were disenchanted with the BJP, she said it was for the Congress to channel this discontent into support.

"We have demonstrated our resilience before and we are now called upon to do so again. For this we must not only highlight the abject failures of the Modi government but more importantly, build a positive and credible narrative for ourselves on issues of public concern."

As CPP chairperson, she said she would work with the Congress president and other colleagues "in discussions with like-minded, political parties to ensure that in the next election, the BJP is defeated and India is restored to a democratic, inclusive, secular, tolerant and economically progressive path".

Sonia Gandhi also sent out the clear message that there would not be two power centres in the party.
