Congress committed for uplift of all sections of society: Sonia

Agencies, Kishanganj
Congress president Sonia Gandhi today launched veiled attack on BJP saying it was hell bent on disturbing the peace and communal harmony to capture power at the Centre but her party would not allow it to succeed as Congress strongly believed in taking together all sections of society, including minorities on path of  development.

She said UPA government at the Centre rolling out several welfare mega schemes including Right to Food, Right to Education and Right to information would change the quality of life of the common man.

Ms Gandhi, while addressing a public meeting here, after laying foundation stone of branch of Aligarh Muslim University, said that Congress was committed for taking together all sections of the society including minorities on path of development.

Congress led UPA government at the Centre had launched several schemes aimed at improving the quality of life of common man and its results were also visible, she added.

“Right to food, right to education and right to information are some of the ambitious schemes launched by the Congress led UPA government at the Centre which would change the quality of life of the common man in days ahead’, Ms Gandhi said adding that about 80 Crores of the people in rural and urban area would get the benefits of right to food scheme and they would have access to food at cheaper rates.

In an oblique reference to BJP and its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, she said some forces were trying to capture power at the Centre at any cost even by disturbing communal harmony and peace in the country.
