Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Sunday encouraged the partymen with an aggressive speech defending her party and the UPA government at the centre. She also reiterated that only Congress is committed to work for the benefits of the poor and underprivileged.
Sonia Gandhi said “The voters reposed faith in the Congress in 2004 and 2009. A few parties have not been able to digest this. They have been trying to weaken the government elected by the people and they continue to halt our welfare policies by frequently obstructing the function of the parliament. Why they are doing so? Why they are opposing the policies which are meant for the poor and aam aadmi? Why they are not allowing us to discuss the crucial issues affecting the people? But I am sure that their real face will be exposed before the public”. The Congress President then warned “I want to make it clear that these parties are trying to weaken the democratic system of our country. But we will never let them to do so. Congress is a party that has always protected the nation’s constitution. We never allowed anyone to disrupt the democratic principle of the system and we will never ever allow such trends”.
