During the second day of the Congress Working Committee meeting in Hyderabad, the party's national chief Mallikarjun Kharge asked all leaders and workers at all levels to meet people regularly and listen to their problems, as the party prepares the ground to fight the national election next year. The Congress party called for unity among citizens cutting across ideological and party lines to "overthrow" what it called "the dictatorial government in order to save democracy."
"This is not the time for us to rest. In the past 10 years under the BJP's rule, the challenges faced by ordinary people have multiplied. The Prime Minister refuses to address the concerns of the poor, farmers, labourers, women and youth; instead, he cannot look beyond himself," Mallikarjun Kharge said.
"In such circumstances, we cannot remain mute spectators. We must unite and overthrow this dictatorial government in order to save our democracy," he said.
Meanwhile, Sonia Gandhi has appealed for the unity of the various alliance partners in the interest of the nation to throw the Narendra Modi government out of power.
