New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi, who arrived at Cambridge University in London to participate in the Ideas for India conference, attacked the BJP and the Sangh fiercely. He said that Congress wants to get India as before and is fighting for it.

Rahul said, "The situation in India is not good, BJP has sprinkled kerosene all around and BJP is trying to suppress our voice. Democracy in India is a global public good. We are the only people who have managed democracy on our unparalleled scale."

The former Congress president said, "India is witnessing attacks on the institutions that have built the country, which is now occupied by the deep state."




He said, "We believe that India is its people. But BJP And the RSS believes that this is geography. We are not just fighting the BJP, it is not a pure political fight anymore. The BJP has 100 percent control over the media."

"Congress is fighting to regain India. It is now an ideological battle. His party is battling infighting, insurgency, defection and electoral defeat," Gandhi added.

The Congress leader claimed that the BJP, despite a sharp drop in employment, remained in power in India due to "polarisation and total domination of the media".

"BJP has sprinkled kerosene all around"


Launching a scathing attack on the ruling party, Rahul Gandhi said, "We are saying, we have an India where different views can exist and we can talk. People say we have a cadet like BJP. We say, if we have a cadet like BJP, we will be BJP. BJP is suppressing voice. We listen. We are designed to listen to people and put it on the table."

Speaking about the US taking up incidents of human rights violations in India, Rahul Gandhi said, "We don't need to tell that there is polarisation in India. We are fighting polarization. This is what Congress is doing. The opposition is doing this. Democracy in India is a global public good. We are the only people who have managed democracy on the scale we have. If it breaks, it is going to cause problems for them.

On the Russo-Ukraine War


Rahul Gandhi was asked that the US and Russia were the two major powers, but with the rise of China as two competing powers, India is in the middle. How should India handle this relationship.

He said, "Very carefully. First we had the terrestrial vision. Then came the sea vision. What the Chinese are offering is prosperity and not the West. They are just saying 'Stop China' without giving any option." This is what India needs to do. From 1990 to 2012 we had a successful vision for our country. The job for the opposition is to give a new perspective to the people of India. India is not going to accept such a vision, that has gone down his throat."


Tensions with China


The Congress leader said, "We need to manage this complex situation and cannot think about it in a superficial way. Thinks Panchsheel. We have huge capabilities in foreign service and foreign affairs. When you are at the national level But you suppress the conversation, when you suppress the conversation in the PM's office - the PM's attitude is non-listening and that's why even the bureaucrats don't want to listen, there is no conversation."

"Chinese soldiers are sitting inside India and I am watching what is really happening in Ukraine. Please realise that there are parallels to what is happening (in Ukraine and India)," he said.

On the caste system


The biggest attack on Manusmriti is the Constitution of India. Congress has been attacking the social system of the country through its actions. We basically believe that equal rights and equal opportunities should be given to every human being in India and India. If you do this, India will be saved. Otherwise it will break."
