Mohali (Punjab), Dec 10: Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party of eroding the credibility of each and every institution of the country, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday said his party will ensure that the BJP is removed from power in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“Each and every institution across country is being attacked&Congress &Opposition is against these attacks. In 2019,we’ll stop only after removing BJP govt from Delhi. Jaldi se jaldi BJP aur Modi Ji ke sarkar ko hum Delhi se hatane ja rahe hai” Gandhi said in Mohali.
Gandhi along with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and senior Congress leader Moti Lal Vora was in Mohali to re-launch the ‘Navjivan’ newspaper.
Continuing his attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Modi government, the Congress President said that an atmosphere of fear had been created in the country and the media was also being suppressed.
“Media ko bhi daraya ja raha hai, dabaya ja raha hai (Media is being intimidated and suppressed). Media has been captured in every state. Media says only what powerful people want to listen. ‘Navjivan’ will be an independent voice in such an atmosphere. It can even criticize the Congress party,” Gandhi said.
He said that Supreme Court judges were openly saying that they were not being allowed to work, Army generals were saying that Modi was using the Army and the Election Commission was also being suppressed.
“We will fight to protect these institutions. We are not like the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh) and BJP.”
The Congress Chief also praised Manmohan Singh saying “he represented crores of Indians on an international platform, he did it with respect and humility”.
