UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi today launched an all out attack on BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, saying that governing the country was not a child’s play and some divisive forces, which were trying to take back the country into darkness, would not be able to do it.
Addressing a rally here, the Congress President said the 2014 Lok Sabha election was a fight of ideologies, and BJP should know that the country had embraced a composite culture and plural values.
Recounting the work done by Congress for the development of the country, she said ‘’governing a country is not a child’s play and BJP does not have the ability to do it effectively.’’
Ms Gandhi sought another mandate from the people, saying the Congress leaders had made multiple sacrifices for the country, and the party always stood for the basic rights of people.
Ms Gandhi’s attack on Mr Modi, though without naming him, came hours after the former slammed the Congress at a rally in Bijapur, Karnataka, in which he said people of the country were fed up of the same ‘’old tapes’’ being played by Congress again and again. ‘’They want track record now,’’ he said. Strict security arrangement had been made for Ms Gandhi’s rally held at the Ajmal Khgna Park in New Delhi constituency, from where Ajay Maken is seeking re-election.
