Lakhimpur (Assam), Mar 30 ANI | 4 months ago

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Sunday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying the opposition party "talks big" and believes in the "politics of hate."


Addressing an election rally here, Gandhi said "The opposition, particularly the BJP, are going round the country indulging in big talk but what did their government do when they were in power at the Centre? There is a big difference between talking and working."

"When people of Assam were struggling to save our country none of them (BJP) came forward. They have spent more time in weakening the country. What did BJP do when it was in power at the Centre? It's easy to talk big but what did they actually do?," she asked.

She further reiterated Congress party's slogan- Har haath shakti, Har haath tarraki - and reminded people that Congress has delivered on its promises.

"We do not make fake promises. We have fulfilled our promises and we will do it in future as well. We need your support for this," she said.

"Congress has given RTI, MNREGA, Food Security to the nation. We have also passed special law to protect tribals," she added.
