Sonia hits out at those ”inventing new past for us”
Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi on Thursday attacked the Narendra Modi government, saying despite her party getting a huge mandate in 1984, it never created an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.
Without naming the BJP, she said today there are those who are “busy inventing a new past for us”. “Rajiv Gandhi was engaged in preparing for a new future,” she stressed.
Speaking at a function to mark the 75th birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi said, “In 1984, he (Rajiv Gandhi) had won by a huge majority, but he did not use that victory to create an atmosphere of fear or intimidation.”
