Sonia Says Congress Party ‘A National Revolution’

Congress president Sonia Gandhi has described the party as a ‘national revolution’, which led the country to Independence from Imperialistic rule, and said that it always stood for secular values.

She made the statement while speaking on the occasion of the Indian National Congress entering its 125th year.

“The party has always promoted secularism through a consensual approach and has stood for protection of rights of the poor,” she said.

She said that the Congress has played a major role in laying the foundation of modern India.

In the function, she and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh laid foundation of the Indira Gandhi Bhavan, which will be new headquarters of the AICC, at Kotla Road. Since 1978 when Congress split, AICC headquarters was at 24, Akbar Road.

Speaking on the occasion, the prime minister said that the focus of his government was on the welfare of the poor and protection of human rights.

“Economic stability has also been the focus area of the party and it is our endeavour to fulfill the dreams of Rajiv Gandhi in the 21st century,” he said.

The Congress has drawn up elaborate programmes for the year-old celebrations and its units at the block, district and state levels have been asked to hold special functions to galvanise the cadre and rekindle the spirit of the Congress.
