BJP Brutalising Minorities, Glorifying Gandhis Killers: Sonia Gandhi Kicks Off Chintan Shivir With Rousing Speech

Speaking at the beginning of Congress' 3-day 'Chintan Shivir' in Rajasthan, the party's president Sonia Gandhi went all guns blazing as she slammed the BJP over the recent violence against minorities and said that the saffron party was targeting people belonging to a certain section and glorifying Mahatma Gandhi's killers.

Sonia Gandhi also accepted the need for major changes in the party and said: "Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir gives us an opportunity to discuss amongst us the numerous challenges that the country is facing as a result of the policies of the BJP, RSS and its affiliates. It is also an occasion to deliberate on the many tasks ahead of us. It is both a Chintan about national issues and aatmachintan about our party's organisational structure."

"It has become abundantly and painfully clear what the Prime Minister and his colleagues really meant by their slogan 'maximum governance, minimum government," Sonia Gandhi said.

"It means keeping country in a permanent state of polarisation, compelling people to live in a constant state of fear and insecurity, viciously targeting victimising and often brutalising minorities who are an integral part of our society and equal citizen of our republic," she said.

"The fire of hatred being ignited has taken a heavy toll on the lives of people. This is having serious social consequences, much more serious than we can imagine," the Congress president stressed.

The Congress president said that major changes in the party organisation cannot be avoided and they will not be avoided. At the same time, she told Congress leaders and workers that the party has given them a lot and it's time to repay the 'debt'.

"Changes in organisation are need of the hour, we need to change the way of our working. We have to keep organisation above personal ambitions, the party has given us a lot and it is time to pay back,"
