Sonia Gandhi at Congress’s Chintan Shivir, Udaipur: The Congress president on Friday launched a blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, charging that it has become clear that his mantra of ‘minimum government, maximum governance’ means keeping the country in a permanent state of polarisation.

Sonia Gandhi has launched a blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the meet, saying that his prime ministership has created a “permanent climate of polarisation.” She urged delegates to deliberate with an open mind and send out message of strong organisation and unity.

Sonia Gandhi, the president of India’s main opposition Congress party, on Friday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), accusing them of being in a permanent state of polarisation. She called it “brutalising” minorities, keeping the country in a permanent state of ‘polarisation’ and threatening political opponents.

Modi’s policies have led to an increase in religious intolerance, and votebank politics, she said. “With his sirf ekta (solo) and gathbandhan (grand alliance) mantras, he has kept the country in a permanent state of polarisation,” she said.”The current government thinks that minorities are as good as dead people,” she added.

As Sonia Gandhi addressed the two-day Congress national executive meeting here, party vice president Rahul Gandhi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh and senior leader Ahmed Patel were seated behind her. Sonia said that since the 2014 Lok Sabha polls when BJP stormed to power with a brute majority on the back of promise of “achche din”, everything has gone horribly wrong.
