Congress President Rahul Gandhi puts party seniors on notice at 84th plenary

Rahul Gandhi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi's call to the youth to take over the party came in his concluding address to the 84th AICC plenary session here when he explained the significance of a podium with a single mike on the stage that surprised many as there were no usual mattresses and cushions to accommodate all senior leaders.

"Modi gives Modi Rs 30,000 crore of your money and, in turn, Modi gives Modi money for marketing Modi and winning elections". "We have to change the Congress".

Reacting to Gandhi's remarks, information and broadcasting minister Irani tweeted, "Rahul Gandhi's hatred for India is astonishing".

He said, "When Modi Ji was campaigning he made lots of tall promises, those promises have not been fulfilled". At a time when technology is used to make systems more efficient and transparent, Congress is talking about discarding it.

Reacting to Rahul's speech where he launched personalised attacks on PM Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and finance minister Arun Jaitley, defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman said, "Comments by the Congress president sound like the rhetoric of a loser, devoid of substance". The Kauravas were powerful and arrogant. Gandhi draws comparisons between Kauravas and BJP-RSS, says Congress is like the Pandavas.

In order to do long-term fix of the party's image - characterised by nepotism and clinging to party posts - the Congress president said his "first task" would be to knock down barriers between leaders and workers, and to promote workers lower down the order.

Rahul in his brief speech at the Congress plenary said, "The country is in a way exhausted, looking for direction and I say it with conviction that only Congress can show country the way".

"Congress expresses its concern over the conduct of foreign policy in a cavalier manner, which has damaged India's profile globally and undermined national interest", the resolution said on foreign policy. He was particulalry critical of the RSS which he said was spreading fear and trying to subvert institutions like judiciary, Parliament and the police. People from press are scared, for 1st time we saw 4 Supreme Court (SC) judges running to public for justice. "They know the BJP lies but they will not let the Congress lie".

Earlier, addressing the plenary, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh accused the Modi government of "messing up" the economy and mishandling the Jammu and Kashmir situation.
