Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday urged students and youth to join him at Rajghat to protest against the “hate and violence unleashed by Modi-Shah” and show that they will not allow India to be “destroyed by hatred”. “Dear Students and Youth of India, it’s not good enough just to feel India. At times like these it’s critical to show that you’re India and won’t allow India to be destroyed by hatred.
“Join me today at 3 PM at Raj Ghat, to protest against the hate and violence unleashed on India by Modi-Shah,” he said on Twitter.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also appealed to people to join them at Rajghat in “this fight for saving” the Constitution.
“This country is a collective bond, collective dream. We have nurtured this land with Labour.
“We have to save the country from the politics of divide and rule. Let us join at 3 PM at Bapu’s memorial at Rajghat and be a part of Constitution recitation,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said in a tweet in Hindi.
On Sunday, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused Congress for spreading misinformation over Citizenship Amending Act and National Registration of Citizens, Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter and urged youths not to allow Modi-Shah to divide India. “Dear Students of India, No Indian student should allow Modi-Shah to divide India the way they are doing. Students of India, you are the future of India and India is your future. Let’s stand together and fight their hate,” he tweeted.
Gandhi said the Modi-Shah duo could only be defeated by responding with love towards every Indian.
His attack on the prime minister and home minister came as Modi, at a rally, hit out at the rival parties of the ruling BJP, accusing them of trying to spread falsehood over the amended Citizenship Act and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) by inciting the minorities and poor people.
