New Delhi, March 17: Congress President Rahul Gandhi inaugurated party’s 84th plenary session at the Constitution Club in the national capital.
Gandhi began his address, saying “I have to make two speeches: introduction and conclusion. I’ll speak more on conclusion. I’ll hear all of you and then give my thoughts on your opinions.
“They (BJP) uses anger we use love but one thing that I want to say is that this country belongs to everyone & whatever Congress will do will be for the benefit for all”.
“The symbol of the hand is the symbol of the Congress party. This is the symbol that holds the country together, shows us the way, and will take India forward”, he stated.
Hitting out at the Narendra Modi government, the country is tired of what is happening under the current Govt. Only the Congress party can show the way and heal divisions in the nation.
