New Delhi: Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday made several major allegations, citing the controversy over copying of Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar and the suspension of opposition MPs. Kharge said that the people holding constitutional posts, who are responsible for the protection of MPs, are doing politics by being a part of party politics and using caste, region and occupation as their shield. He said that these people holding constitutional posts have failed to fulfill their responsibilities.

‘Rahul should take out another Bharat Jodo Yatra’

Kharge, in his opening address at the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, also said that Congress leaders and workers demand that Rahul Gandhi take out the second phase of ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ from east to west. Kharge said, ‘Elections for the 18th Lok Sabha are imminent. In this regard, the fourth meeting of ‘INDIA’ alliance was held in Delhi on 19 December 2023. We have moved forward in many directions. We have to win as many seats as possible by coordinating with like-minded colleagues.

‘Review meeting completed with 24 states’

Kharge said that Congress has formed a 5-member National Alliance Committee, which will decide the outline of the alliance with other parties. He said, ‘For the last several months, all the party leaders and workers have been continuously putting forward a demand before me in one voice that Rahul Gandhi should take out ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ from East to West. I put this before Rahul ji in the working committee and leave the decision to all of you. In view of the preparations for the Lok Sabha elections, a review meeting has been held with about 24 states. We will also soon appoint a coordinator at the Lok Sabha seat level.

‘Suspension of 146 MPs is unfortunate’

The Congress President alleged that the government is strangling democracy to arbitrarily pass important bills and a conspiracy is afoot to convert Parliament into a platform for the ruling party. He said, ‘The way 146 MPs of our ‘India’ alliance have been suspended in both the Houses so far in the current Parliament session is unfortunate.’ Kharge claimed that the Modi government is working against the dignity of Parliament by passing all the important bills in the absence of the opposition.

‘Patriotism is in our blood and DNA’

Kharge said that the biggest challenge is that the people holding constitutional posts, who are responsible for providing protection to the opposition MPs, are themselves becoming a part of party politics and doing politics using caste, region and occupation as their shield. He alleged that people holding constitutional posts have failed to fulfill their responsibilities under the Constitution, which the entire country is watching. The Congress President said, ‘Our 138 years of sacrifice has been a history of sacrifice and restraint. Patriotism is in our blood and DNA. Even during the British rule, our ancestors did not learn to fear and bow down.

‘The age of sin and lies is very short’

Kharge claimed that the government side has been trying to mislead the public for the last 10 years for its own interests by defaming great heroes and distorting history. He said, ‘We will have to answer them with the help of truth in restrained and dignified language. We are doing the same work in the House also. Our ideology does not allow us to lie like them, to do the same thing that this government is doing today. The lifespan of ego, sin and lies is very short but truth is immortal. I have full confidence that we will achieve victory with the struggle to provide justice to the people. (Language)
