Rahul Gandhi assails PM; Shah calls him 'failed leader'

24 April 2018

Gandhi launched a "Save the Constitution" national campaign today against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "systematically destroying the Indian Constitution and attacks on the Dalits". Let me have a face to face debate with Modi in parliament on Rafale, he can not face me even for 15 minutes.

"If I am allowed to speak for 15 minutes on Rafale issue in Parliament before Modi, he will not be able to withstand it", he said. Gandhi said while Modi often claimed that India's global standing had improved under his government, the image of the country built over decades of Congress rule had "in fact taken a beating" in the last four years.

In a Facebook post, Mr. Shah said the Congress was the moving force behind the motion and it was determined to weaken institutions "which did not kowtow to the dynasty".

Mr Gandhi also targeted that the prime-minister within the new spate of baby rape scenarios, which evoked fury on the other side of the country.

Addressing a gathering here to mark the launch of a "Save the Constitution" campaign, the Congress president said the people of the country will reveal their "Mann Ki Baat" in the coming Lok Sabha elections and throw the BJP out of power.

Going full throttle, he alleged that institutions were being packed with people who believed in the RSS's ideology.

Lekhi "thanked" Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu for rejecting the Congress's notice for impeachment of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and said the Opposition party's attempt was an act of "blasphemy" towards the Constitution.

The rally, a campaign, will cover the length and breadth of the country and will end nearly a year later on April 14, the birth anniversary of Dalit icon and father of the Indian Constitution BR Ambedkar. They thought India's Constitution, institutions, the Supreme Court had a lot of value and looked up to us.

Speaking during the event, Gandhi said PM Modi was only concerned about winning a second term, adding it didn't matter to him whether the country was burning, girls were getting raped and the rights of Scheduled Castes and other minorities were being threatened.

"The Congress" "Save the Constitution' campaign is nothing but a farce that seeks to perpetuate the rule of the dynasty over the rule of democracy. But the Prime Minister is quiet". "Rahul Gandhi's anger and frustration is because he realises that dynasty is on its way out. Shameful and petty", Amit Shah said.

"You will see Congress flag protecting people there", he added.
