The Congress has become very anxious about allegations of corruption that it has launched a protest against anti-democratic policies of the BJP. BJP and its leaders accused Sonia Gandhi of being involved in chopper scam and also attacked her saying Congress blocked investigations into, corrupt payments linked to an order of a dozen helicopters from Agusta, owned by Italian defence giant Finmeccanica. Whereas these days, BJP and its PM both boasted about being committed to rooting out corruption, but in the last 2 years NDA did nothing but twiddled their thumbs. When lakhs of crores are involved in various scams including Chikki to Vyapam, government has not given any priority for conducting the investigation. Actually, NDA is stiff scared of Congress and they are in awe of Gandhis. This applies to PM Modi also, who has proven that he can only talk big but no action on the ground level.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]Congress president Sonia Gandhi refuted the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) allegations over AgustaWestland case and dared the ruling party to prove charges.[/inlinetweet] She claimed that all the allegations against her in the VVIP chopper deal are baseless and part of the BJP’s strategy of character assassination. She said that they have nothing to hide. She asked for proofs. According to media reports, the Italian court ruling states how the firm lobbied with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her close aides besides the then NSA MK Narayanan and the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Gandhi was described as the “driving force” by the judge behind the AgustaWestland deal.

Subramanian Swamy, who took an oath as the newly-nominated member of Rajya Sabha, spearheaded the BJP’s attack against Sonia Gandhi and the Congress in Rajya Sabha. BJP had appointed Meenakshi Lekhi to lead the attack against the Congress Party in Lok Sabha. From social network to Rajya Sabha, the saffron party randomly attacked Congress and its president but interestingly, the united Congress including Manmohan Singh came in defence of Gandhi’s and took aggressive stand against the BJP. The world renowned Economist who was assumed being a puppet in the hands of the Congress but now he has openly commented and passed statements on BJP’s wrongdoings. Nowadays, people can see the hidden courage of Mr. Singh, whereas Sonia is displaying her mature side of politics just like Indira Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi too is very active these days, and anyhow they managed to grab people’s attention once again. BJP’s ‘Congress mukt Bharat’ dreams have come to a halt.

Recently, a Milan court has sentenced the former bosses of Finmeccanica and its AgustaWestland unit to jail for corruption in the India deal. Documents it referred to included letters from middlemen that mentioned Mrs. Gandhi and other Congress leaders as people to pursue or influence to land the deal. The CBI and the Enforcement Directorate, which tackles financial crimes, are trying to piece together who was bribed in India for the helicopter scam. In Parliament, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said the Congress’ misdoings stand exposed. Congress lawmakers walked out in protest, demanding that the Supreme Court monitor the investigation into the helicopter deal, which was signed in 2010 and cancelled in 2014. Earlier on Friday morning, Mrs. Gandhi led a Congress rally which turned into her courting arrest, along with her son and party Vice President, Rahul – a move in keeping with the aggressive strategy the Congress is exercising.

Manmohan Singh accused the Narendra Modi government of trying to dislodge Congress governments in the states. He said ever since BJP has come to power they have only one mission ‘Congress-mukt Bharat’. They say this wherever they go. I want to tell the Modi government that Congress is India’s soul and further he stressed on ‘Saving Democracy’. According to Manmohan, Congress is like a flowing Ganga. You defame it or do whatever, it will not change its course. There have been many attacks on Congress in the past since 1885 (when it was established). People have tried to weaken the party. However, they could not succeed. Referring to the political crises in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Singh said, Congress is not there in many states. But wherever it is ruling attempts have been made to dislodge it.

The Modi government has attacked democracy. Now, they are targeting other Congress ruled states like Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram and the Virbhadra Singh government in Himachal Pradesh. They are trying to dislodge these governments. It is necessary that Congress workers reach out to people in every corner of the country and spread the message that the Modi government is uprooting democracy. Looking at Congress’s no nonsense mood, it’s quite clear that they will not allow BJP to succeed. At present universities are not safe, courts are not safe. So, it is your duty to understand this and ensure defeat of the Modi government’s designs. People need to be wise enough to understand the political motives and only they can save the democracy.
