Speaking at a conclave UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi said, “Provocative statements from the ruling establishment are not random or accidental. They are part of a dangerous design.”
Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi said attempts were being made to rewrite history.
UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Friday launched a direct attack against the Narendra Modi government, alleging that freedom of the people was “under systematic and sustained assault” as provocative statements from the ruling establishment were neither random nor accidental but “part of a dangerous design”.
Delivering the keynote address at the India Today Conclave 2018 in Mumbai, the former Congress president said all that was being done by attempts to rewrite history, falsifying facts and attacking nation builders.
“Our society, our freedom all are now under systematic and sustained assault. Make no mistake about it. This is a well sort out project long in the making to refashion the very idea of India,” Gandhi said.
“The freedom to think for oneself and differ … to meet or marry according to ones wishes all this and more are under attack.
“Provocative statements from the ruling establishment are not random or accidental. They are part of a dangerous design,” she said and added that vigilante mobs and private armies have been let loose with state patronage.
