Congress president Rahul Gandhi has once again lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre saying he will not allow “destruction” of institutions of the country like the Supreme Court and the Reserve Bank of India.

The BJP government believes “only one idea should run India”, Gandhi alleged at a public rally organised by his party’s southern ally, the DMK. M K Stalin, DMK president also addressed the gathering .

 

The meeting was attended by  several opposition leaders that signalled a united front to take on the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha Polls Those present were  TDP supremo and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Superstar Rajinikanth, and Shatrughan Sinha .

Gandhi was addressing the rally after participating in an earlier event for unveiling late DMK president M Karunanidhi’s statue at the party’s headquarters Anna Arivalayam in Chennai. Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi was also present on the occasion.

Training his guns on the Narendra Modi government, Gandhi accused it of targeting institutions of the country, besides the culture of India.

“We are not going to allow the destruction of the idea of India. We are not going to allow the destruction of institutions, the supreme Court, Reserve Bank of India, Election Commission of India,” he said.

“And we are going to stand together and do this,” he added.

“….. all voices in India are going to get together and defeat the BJP in the next elections” he said.
