Anand, Gujarat, 4 Nov. 2007 (Hindustan Times)Congress president Sonia Gandhi virtually launched her party’s election campaign in Gujarat on Saturday, calling upon a large gathering of women to throw out the government of ‘hatred, injustice and corruption’.Addressing the party’s ‘Mahila Samman Sammelan’, Sonia told the crowd of nearly two lakh that Gujarat’s pride can be restored only if such a government led by people who espouse hatred and injustice is thrown out.…Sonia said the BJP did not even hesitate to drag the name of Lord Ram to further their political goals.She told the rally that it was the BJP-led government which had started the Sethusamudram project but are now using it to arouse the sentiments of the people.“Why had they not bothered about Lord Ram at that time?” Sonia asked.BJP leaders change their colours quickly and are experts in misleading the people by spreading falsehoods, she said.“For the Congress, all faiths are equal,” Sonia asserted. She said the women of Gujarat would have to ponder what kind of people now lead the Gujarat of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.http://tinyurl.com/2el96l PTI (Economic Times, 4 Nov. 2007) “These people have shown no hesitation in dragging Lord Ram’s name into their game of politics. How can we trust such people,” she said while addressing a largely-attended women’s rally — ‘Mahila Samman Sammelan’ here. Gandhi said the Sethusamudram project was being “used these days as a means to arouse the emotions of people”.
“Why don’t they tell the truth that it was during the BJP rule and under the NDA regime that the project came about. You should know this truth and tell other people as well. “Did they (BJP) not think about Lord Ram while deciding about the scheme,” she said, adding the UPA government was looking at all aspects of the issue without hurting the sentiments of any religion. “For the Congress party, all religions are equal,” she added. http://tinyurl.com/yq6nc5
