Senior Congress leaders and workers assembled at Srinagar Party office early today to participate in the Satyagrah where they raised slogans against the vendetta politics of BJP against Rahul Gandhi and demanded revocation of Gandhi’s disqualification, terming it a prearranged move of Modi Govt after feeling insecure and uncomfortable by the issues raised in the Parliament especially on Adani Groups of Companies.
The leaders asserted that Rahul Gandhi’s questions based on facts has made BJP Govt uncomfortable and apprehensive about its political future, which is set to receive a huge setback given its (BJP) organized loot, wrong policies and misleading politics, besides the nexus between Modi Govt and some Corporates especially Adani.
They said parliamentary democracy like other institutions is also under attack where the genuine voices are being crushed and the prominent issues confronting the country which were raised by Gandhi day in and day out were also expunged to hide failures of Modi Govt.
