The party’s top leaders, including Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, were present when Mr. Kharge raised the party flag at the headquarters in Delhi.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Kharge asserted that the Congress’ inclusive strategy of bringing everyone along has accelerated India’s progress. He claimed that within a few decades, India not only developed into a powerful democracy but also a powerhouse in terms of economics, nuclear power, and strategy.

Additionally, pointing at the BJP led government he said, “fundamentals of India are being constantly attacked”. “The society is being divided by hate, people are hit by price rise and unemployment but the government is not bothered.”
Furthermore he said, “The Congress needs to unite youngsters, women and deprived sections of the society and take them along in our fight against price rise, unemployment and hatred,” he said.
Mr Kharge said, this has already started with the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra. “Sanjeevani” has been made available by the yatra, reviving Congress workers across.
Sanjeevani is a medicinal plant that was mentioned in the Hindu epic Ramayana and helped Lakshman recover from a wound that nearly killed him.
He claimed that the yatra has garnered a great deal of support from the nation’s citizens, which has alarmed the Congress’s rivals.
