Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi during the 84th plenary session of the Indian National Congress slammed the BJP government as “power drunk”. In her speech she said that the Modi government was trying all possible tricks to wipe out the Congress but she asserted that her party would never bow down.
She exhorted her party workers to support Rahul and to be ready to make sacrifices to strengthen the party. She claimed that the Congress was fighting a tyrannical government and that the masses have begun to realise that the promises made by the BJP in 2014 were hollow. She said that under the leadership of Manmohan Singh, the former Prime Minister, the economy of the country flourished.
