Your Struggle Is Congress’ Struggle: Sonia Gandhi Tells In Gulbarga, Karnataka
Total Articles: 23
Gulbarga: Congress President and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi launched party’s campaign for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka by addressing a huge public rally in Gulbarga on Saturday. While speaking on the occasion, Sonia Gandhi said that the Centre amended the Article 371 of the Constitution for giving special status to the backward Hyderabad-Karnataka region.
The Congress President highlighted the pro-people measures taken by the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre and attacked the earlier BJP government in the state for not implementing those schemes properly. “Unfortunately, earlier, because of the misrule of the corrupt BJP government here, the benefits of these schemes and policies could not reach its targeted beneficiaries. But, now, the present Congress government in the state has been putting its sincere efforts to implement the central schemes properly and promptly, and the people of all sections are gaining from it,” said Sonia Gandhi and added “..The present government in Karnataka, it has been working for the welfare of the people... The government and the Congress party have been trying to deliver on the promises made by us during the election campaign”.
“We all must know that one can reap the benefits of development only if we get rid of the menace of corruption. I do not have to explain the double stance of our opposition on corruption, as you have experienced it under BJP rule in Karnataka” Sonia Gandhi said.
“Congress always led the battle against corruption, from the front. That is why we enacted Right to Information Act and passed the Lokpal Bill. All the Congress ruled states will constitute a strong Lokayukta by this month end. While the BJP and other opposition parties are making false promises, spreading rumours and false allegations against us, we have been concentrating on our pro-poor efforts” underlined Sonia Gandhi and emphasised, “We do not talk much, but just act. BJP and opposition parties talk big but only Congress delivers on its promises”.
Once again taking on the BJP, the Congress leader continued, “Do you think that these opposition parties, who are busy in blowing their trumpets and making false claims on achievements, can do anything for the development of the country? Can they address the issues of the poor? No; never. They have just one aim – the chair. They will do anything to grab power. We all must be vigilant against such forces. We must identify their real, true face”.
“Congress is not at all bothered about securing power but is bothered about the country and its people. Our concern is to make the dream of our youth a reality. Congress’s concern is the welfare and upliftment of the poor. Our concern is to maintain secularism, brotherhood and harmony of our country so that we can progress in the required manner” said Sonia Gandhi and concluded, “Your struggles are Congress party's struggles and your fight is the Congress party's fight”.
Earlier, Sonia Gandhi inaugurated the ESIC Medical College and buildings of ESIC Hospital, Dental College, and Nursing College constructed at a cost of Rs 893 crore.

I get a fresh energy whenever I come here. The people of Karnataka are politically well educated and I am grateful to the people here for reposing faith in the Congress party almost all the time.

Our Chief Minister has just gave the details of various policies taken up by the government and I do not want to repeat it. You know about it better. The government and the Congress party have been trying to deliver on the promises made by us during the election campaign.
