Rahul chairs first CWC meeting as party chief

24 December, 2017, 02:10 | Author: Lydia Fleming

The top scholar adds, Modi "claimed that he is the son of the soil while Rahul Gandhi was an outsider who could not speak the language and Manmohan Singh the interlocutor of Pakistanis". "The main expression was that he (Modi) has handed over Gujarat to a few vested interests and he has taken tremendous benefits from Gujarat but Gujarat hasn't received anything in return", he said.

On Thursday, a special CBI court said investigators had failed to prove allegations that 2G or second generation spectrum was allocated out-of-turn at cheaper rates in exchange for bribes when the Congress was in power and DMK's A Raja was telecom minister. Gandhi said there is a lot of opportunity for the Congress "that we need to step into and take advantage of".

In Gujarat, the Congress has lost the election but the party has been boasting about the results as a symbolic victory for its cadre as it instilled a sense of confidence within the ranks. He termed the Gujarat campaign as "unique" and "a real eye-opener" for him, where he got to know how the BJP designs campaigns and "uses hatred and untruth" to fight elections. "I was surprised when I went to Gujarat", he said. "At every step, they were trying to polarise. 3-4 months ago, people were questioning if the Congress could even contest elections in Gujarat", the Congress leader said. The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies. "Should Modi, Arun Jaitley and other BJP leaders be not held accountable for conspiring with Vinod Rai to malign the Congress?" We do not prescribe anything for any other political party leaders.

With Congress facing stiff electoral challenges, the CWC urged Rahul Gandhi to energise the party organisation at the earliest, while he also mentioned the challenges for the party in the assembly polls next year.

The alleged scam relates to the granting of 2G spectrum licences in 2007-08, which caused, according to a report by the then Comptroller and Auditor General of India, a loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the public exchequer. "Now they should not blame us", he said.
