Congress never promotes communal violence, believes in unity: Rahul Gandhi
Making an attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) meet on Friday said that the Congress does not play politics by turning people against one and, by lighting the fire of communal violence, and that it believes in unity.
"We do not play politics by turning people against one and other, lighting the fire of communal violence because we believe in unity," said Gandhi.
He also said that there were six pending bills in the Parliament that needed to be passed.
"Everybody spoke about the Lokpal Bill and created so much drama, but eventually it was the Congress that passed the bill," he said.
"We have six bills in Parliament that will transform the fight against corruption and, we will not respond by blocking Parliament sessions year after year, day after day," said Gandhi.
"These bills are going to transform the fight against corruption. If these bills are implemented in spirit, dishonesty will be punished and honest officials will be protected and we will ensure that the Opposition doesn't stall these bills," he said.
"We need to look for solutions not problems. Congress workers will be given a say in party affairs. We have to bring in the new generation of the young and new ideologies into the party and added that all Congress workers will fight the Lok Sabha elections," he added.
