Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has once again taken a strict stance against those who regularly try to question the legacy of Congress and has termed that it is shameful that those who acted as ‘British Informers’ were questioning the legacy of Congress party.
He was speaking on the end of ‘Flag March’ which ended at PCC against the policies of the BJP government while commemorating the 135th Foundation Day of Congress party at Pradesh Congress Committee on Saturday.
Addressing the gathering on this occasion, he recollected the contributions made by first Prime Minister of the country Jawaharlal Nehru. He spoke about the sacrifice of former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Beant Singh who were assassinated.
The congressman in Gehlot gets miffed when the opposition –BJP tries to malign the image of Congress leaders and first Prime Minister Nehru and there is a backlash from him over such incidents. He has been very open and has spoken clearly against the CAA and NRC and is a vocal critique of BJP’s economic policies.
Gehlot is one of the most vociferous and outspoken against the BJP government at the Centre but has never made any negative personal remarks against any leader. He has always said that the fight is of ideology and of political ideals and it is perhaps because of that reason Gehlot is respected across the country.
While speaking about the journey of the party he said that the era of giving ‘rights’ was started during the ten years of UPA rule during which Right to Information, Right to Education , MNREGA etc were given to the people of the country.
Gehlot said that the ideology , its policies and programs will again strengthen the nation and spoke about the recent debacle of BJP in various assembly elections.
