Brutal atrocities against SC, ST and minorities are continuing with impunity and shaming us all, the Congress supremo added.

“There is overall failure of this government. They do not see their own corruption. Their numbers are dicey. They cannot control price rise. They are attacking democratic institutions by imposing the President’s Rule,” Sonia is reported to have briefed her MPs.
