New Delhi, Aug 13, ANI | 2 months ago

Congress party leader Manish Tewari today stated that the debate on Communal Violence Bill is the need of the hour while emphasizing that likeminded parties must come together to combat the spectre of communalism.


Tewari told ANI, "It is the need of the hour because ever since this government has come into existence there is a spectre of communalism which hangs over the country. Thus, it is very important that all the progressive, right thinking, pluralistic political parties come together to combat this spectre".

"There is a need for a debate on this bill", he added.

Earlier, Congress leader Rashid Alvi had also said that it was a good thing that Communal Violence Bill will be discussed in the Parliament today.

The Congress party has given an adjournment notice in Lok Sabha to discuss communal violence and Sonia Gandhi also addressed a Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP) meet held today.

According to sources, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said in the CPP meet today that communal tensions have increased under new Government.

She also reportedly told the party that they will have to work together, forgetting internal differences and would have to work hard to get the party back to power in the CPP meet today.
