According to the AICC General secretary, 'Congress president Rahul Gandhi has directed to organise a nationwide fast to protect and promote communal harmony between different sections of society across the country on April 9 in all states and district headquarters.' Slamming the NDA Government at the Centre and the state governments ruled by the BJP to protect the Dalit community and prevent the violence during the recent Bharat Bandh, the AICC said, 'Peace and harmony have been embodied in the soul of this country and the responsibility to uphold it lies with the Congress. What has happened on April 2 during the Bharat Bandh was very unfortunate. 'It is very dangerous for the social fabric of this country.
