BJP made shameless attempts to subvert democracy in Maharashtra: Sonia Gandhi

NEW DELHI: Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday hit out at the BJP for making "shameless attempts to subvert democracy in Maharashtra."
Addressing the general body meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party, Sonia slammed the Maharashtra governor for behaving in "an unprecedented and most reprehensible manner."

"There is no doubt that the governor acted under the instructions of the Prime Minister and the home minister," Sonia said, adding, " every effort was made to blatantly sabotage the three-party alliance government formation but we appealed to the Supreme Court and the Modi-Shah government was totally exposed."

Sonia said BJP's pre-poll alliance in Maharashtra did not hold because of its own arrogance and over-confidence.

The interim Congress president also attacked the government over the country's economic condition.

"Growth is declining, unemployment is growing and investment is not happening," Sonia told the party MPs.

She added there is worsening distress among farmers, traders and small and medium businesses.

"Profit-making Public Sector Undertakings (PSU) are being sold to Narendra Modi's friends," said Sonia Gandhi.

Over the issue of WhatsApp privacy breach, she said that Narendra Modi government is taking away fundamental rights of the citizens.

"Political leaders of India were not allowed in Jammu and Kashmir but some European MPs were, it was a shameful act by Narendra Modi and Amit Shah," said Congress president.

Further, Congress party has given Adjournment Motion Notice in Lok Sabha over BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur's remarks in praise of Nathuram Godse in the lower house of Parliament. The Lok Sabha expunged her remark after Speaker Om Birla said her remark will not go into the records of the House proceedings.
