Mumbai: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday addressed reporters in Mumbai, where he launched yet another attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government at the Centre. He also called for opposition unity.
In a brief press statement, Gandhi said that formation of the grand alliance of opposition parties to take on PM Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party was not just the sentiments shared by politicians but also by the people. He added that his party was attempting to bring together these voices and the work to do so was in progress, PTI reported.
“It is the sentiment of the people and not just political parties which are opposed to the BJP, to have a mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) that can take on the BJP, the RSS and Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said, while addressing reporters. He further added, “Prime Minister Modi and the BJP are attacking the Constitution and institutions of the nation.”
