Only Congress can give a strong govt.to the country: Sonia GandhiMay 9th, 2009 - 10:20 pm ICT by ANI
Dehradun, May 9 (ANI): Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday asserted that only a Congress-led government could give a strong government to the people of the country and treat all sections of society equally.
“The country needs a strong government at the centre, a truthful government at the centre who would treat equally all sections of the society. Only Congress party can give you such a government led by Dr Manmohan Singh,” said Sonia Gandhi, during an election rally here.
Sonia also reminded the public how there was no ‘India Shining’ taking place at the time when it was being so much popularised by the National Democratic Alliance in the previous government.
Countering the BJP’s consistent mention of the present national security being flimsy, Sonia said it was public to see how the previous NDA government handled terrorism (in Kandhar airplane hijack incident) by submitting before the terrorists’ demands and how the Congress handled it under its regime in last five years.
