Congress rubbishes report 'misquoting' Rahul Gandhi
"When governance fails, rumour rules! Congress is a party of 132 Cr Indians, bereft of your faith-ethnicity-colour of one's skin-region-belief. For Congress is the foundational idea of India. No Bhakt will deter us from treading the path! Jai Hind," Surjewala tweeted.
During the meeting, Rahul Gandhi was advised to do a self-introspection of the Congress party. He was urged to think about how "Congress worked in the era of 1970s when it talked about inclusiveness and 'Sajha virasat'". However, nothing regarding upcoming elections and Personal Law Board for Muslim community were discussed in the meeting, said Iliash Malik
