Training her guns on BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Sunday warned the people against the “politics of hatred” propagated by the opposition party and asked them not to be swayed by “false promises” and big talk.
“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”, Sonia told an election rally in Lakhimpur town. The BJP and its leadership is “propagating the politics of hatred,” she said.
She asked the people not to be swayed by the “false promises of the opposition but be guided by their own good sense and take a decision to support the Congress and vote for their candidates.”
On the other hand, the Congress has strengthened the country’s ‘Ganga-Jamuna’ culture, she said.
“We do not make false promises. What we promise, we deliver. The Congress believes in ‘Har Haath Shakti, Har Haath Tarakki (Each hand is power, each hand is progress)’,” she added.
Budget earmarked Rs 3.40 crore for the Nirbhaya Fund, to be used for the upkeep of security of women.
