Biswanath Chariali (Assam):
In a blistering attack on the Modi government, Sonia Gandhi today accused it of trying to topple all Congress-ruled state governments by resorting to “undemocratic and unconstitutional” tactics. “In Arunachal (Pradesh) and Uttarakhand, they (BJP) did everything to topple the elected governments. They are trying to do it in all states ruled by Congress,” the Congress President said at an election rally here.
“If it was possible, they would have done the same in Assam and topple the government here too. They are anti-people and anti-Assam,” Gandhi said while attacking the NDA government at the Centre of “functioning in an undemocratic and unconstitutional manner”.
The Congress leader said the BJP government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, did not believe in the Constitution and the democratic set up of the country installed by Mahatma Gandhi, B R Ambedkar and Jawaharlal Nehru.
