New Delhi:

Congress Rubbishes Report ‘Misquoting’ Rahul Gandhi


The Congress on Thursday rubbished a report that quoted Rahul Gandhi saying it is a Muslim party.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala refuted a newspaper report saying the party does not discriminate on the grounds of religion and ethnicity.

“When governance fails, rumour rules! Congress is a party of 132 Cr Indians, bereft of your faith-ethnicity-colour of one’s skin-region-belief. For Congress is the foundational idea of India. No Bhakt will deter us from treading the path! Jai Hind,” Surjewala tweeted.

On Thursday, a report in an Urdu daily emerged on social media accusing the grand old party of minority appeasement ahead of the upcoming 2019 general elections. The report comes just a day after Congress President Rahul Gandhi met a few Muslim intellectuals.

During the meeting, Rahul Gandhi was advised to do a self-introspection of the Congress party. He was urged to think about how “Congress worked in the era of 1970s when it talked about inclusiveness and ‘Sajha virasat'”. However, nothing regarding upcoming elections and Personal Law Board for Muslim community were discussed in the meeting, said Iliash Malik.
