She targetted the Narendra Modi government, accusing it of copying the schemes and programmes of the UPA dispensation and taking credit for the same.

Addressing a convention of ‘Mahila Congress’ in New Delhi, Sonia along with Rahul Gandhi sought to reach out to women by promising a larger electoral role for them at all levels and making a strong pitch for reservation for them in Parliament and state Assemblies.

They told the convention organised on the occasion of 70th birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi that women members of the Congress should become a “tsunami” and contribute actively in the battle between ideologies.

“We had done so much. Still some people laid a trap and people got caught in it. Our work, our achievements got ignored and those showing false dreams marched ahead,” she said, targeting BJP as she looked back at the Lok Sabha polls.  To buttress her point about performance of the previous Congress-led government, she listed a number of measures initiated for women empowerment and other reforms.
