Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday kicked off her party’s campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in Kerala, slamming the BJP for showing no interest in fighting against corruption. “What action has BJP taken against corruption? All they can do is point at us. We have always acted against it,” said Sonia Gandhi.

Lashing out at the opposition for following a divide-and-rule policy, the Congress president said, “The idea of a secular India is under threat. We unite the nation, their idea is to divide India by hate.” “Opposition is only capable of pointing fingers at us.” she added.

Focusing on its strategy to work for unity and protecting the livelihood of tribals, Sonia further said that “we must fight for unity and work towards a prosperous India”.

Gandhi also cleared that her party aims at continuing to work for India’s future and development and not division. Ensuring people of winning the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, she concluded her speech with another message of unity that said “We all are one group – Congress men and women – Congress party group. This is how we will win this electoral battle.”

            Just to remind that it was not cong in power for last 10 years. The inefficiency is unbelievable, think of a govt who cannot prosecute even its political opponents who they beleive have done corruption in 10 years.

                According to Madam Sonia, BJP is not interested in eradication of corruption, Congress/UPA are mother of corruption, then she should ask for she must approach displaced AAP to help them. The proposed UPA shall be Congress DMK RDJ JLSP Aam Aadmi Party. With an undertaking that if comes to power Shri Kejriwal shall be Minister for Eradication of Corruption. This combinatuion shall get them comfortable Majority and certain elevation for Shri Rahul hi.

                  Sonia should turn herself in for Bofor corruption. Then all remaining Ghandi Clan should take on Maran Varat until a law is ped for public hangings of all corrupt politicians and policemen - PROBEM SOLVED. Lastly, they should rename all monuments of Nehru, Indira and Rajiv to the BRAVE SON OF INDIA, Mr. Kejriwal.

                            divide-and-rule policy applies to congress and BJP very well. the recent example is division of AP without people's aspirations into consideration.

                                Look at your own party and find some way to fight corruption. Does she thinks that people of india are fools. She should understand that people of kerala are watching the the worthless acts inside the parliament by congressmen and their allies. they will not encourage or support congress anymore. Why cann't she plan and address rally in Gujarat/rajesthan/tamilnadu/W.bengal/ why she is afraid of it? So if she is not then stop commenting on BJP anymore.No need of your advice to bjp,they will do the best to fight corruption.

                                  Ms Sonia has the gall to ask what BJP has done to fight corruption. They simply didin.t indulge in it compared to the way she has led her party to create monumental scams. No one in India could even imagine in India such some of money could be pered. True, she and her party have shown the way. So no one has any belief that legislations on such aspect cqn ever be properly drawn by them and do not wish to support it. Better to leave it for the next Lok Sabha to deal with it. There is no true ring coming out of her or her party on this subject.

                                      Mr Kejriwal has good intentions but lacks experience governance and credibility. Jumps and hops consistantly without completing each task at hand.
