Today (23.12.2019) afternoon, the Indian National Congress party led by Sonia Gandhi will be dramatization a ‘satyagraha’ at Rajghat demanding protection for the Constitution.
Prominent Congress leaders will participate in the manifestation including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. This will be a silent demonstration which will start around 3 pm today and continue till 8 pm. The judgment to hold the silent protest was taken at a party meeting on Saturday, December 21 at Sonia Gandhi’s residence.
All senior Congress leaders will participate in satyagraha at Mahatma Gandhi’s Samadhi at Rajghat. They prefer to go in accordance with the path of non-violence, yet consistent and unequivocal opposition shown by the Father of the Nation. The party’s satyagraha will fight against this dictatorial government and to protect Baba Saheb’s (B R Ambedkar) sacred Constitution said by Congress general secretary K C Venugopal.
For the same movement, Rahul Gandhi has urged students and youths to join him at Rajghat to protest against the “hate and violence set free by Modi-Shah” and show that they will not allow India to be “destroyed by hatred”.
Dear Students and Youth of India, It’s not good enough just to feel India. At times like these, it’s critical to show that you’re India and won’t allow India to be destroyed by revulsion.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also appealed to people to join them at Rajghat in “this fight for saving” the Constitution.
They said we have to save the country from the politics of divide and rule. Let us join at 3 PM at Bapu’s memorial at Rajghat and be a part of the Constitution presentation said by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in a tweet in Hindi.
According to Congress, there is a widespread bitterness against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government over the implementation of citizenship law.
Citizenship Amendment Act allows mistreated minorities like Hindu, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs and Parsis (excluding Muslims) from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan to stay in India.
The passing of the Citizenship Amendment Bill in both the houses has resulted in numerous violent protests across the country.
Congress is dedicated to protect the principles preserved in the Constitution and fight for the continuation, maintenance and safeguard of the rights of all, as conserved and assured by our founding fathers said the leader.
The Congress party has blamed the government for using swine force against “silent and peaceful” protesters across the country and for “stopping” people from holding demonstrations against the new citizenship law and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Though, a strong appeal has been made by the Gandhi family. But things are also very clear that the act passed by the Modi government is very clear and transparent and it is for the welfare of the nation. People should, the first trust on themselves & government and secondly, go through the act carefully before participating in such anti campaigns.
