Congress Protest: The Congress will hold a rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan on Sunday in an all-out attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government over inflation, unemployment and increase in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on essential commodities. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and several other party leaders will address the rally on inflation.
Workers from many states will be involved
It will include party workers from Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh besides other parts of the country. The rally is being held ahead of the opposition party’s 3,500-km “Bharat Jodo Yatra” from Kanyakumari to Kashmir from September 7, where Rahul Gandhi will travel across the country to highlight issues of inflation and unemployment and promote communal harmony. . “Bharat Jodo Yatra” is the biggest ever public relations program of the Congress party, where the leaders of the party will reach out to the common people at the grassroots level.
Sonia Gandhi out of the country for treatment
Congress President Sonia Gandhi has gone out of the country for treatment and party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has also accompanied her, due to which she will not participate in both the programs. Rahul Gandhi is also currently abroad with his mother Sonia Gandhi, but he will return by Saturday and both will take part in huge events. The Congress has been attacking the government over inflation and unemployment and has been saying that these are common people’s issues and should be discussed in all forums.
Azad will also address his first public meeting in Jammu
After leaving the party, former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad is also going to address his first public meeting at Sainik Farms in Jammu. Azad, who has criticized the Congress leadership in his resignation letter, may intensify his attack on Sunday. The Congress, however, termed former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Azad’s public statements against the party leadership as a “diversion tactic” launched at the behest of the ruling BJP.
