“We are committed to make alliances work and we are all with him (Rahul Gandhi) in this endeavour. We have to rescue our people from a dangerous regime that is compromising the democracy of India,” said Gandhi at the meeting.
By this statement, Gandhi hinted that her party will form alliance in the coming election to defeat the BJP and the CWC is expected to give him a go-ahead in the matter.
Speaking at the CWC meeting, former finance minister P Chidambaram also called for the broadest political alliance to defeat the NDA.
Addressing the meeting, Rahul Gandhi reminded the members of the party of their role as the ‘voice of India’ and their responsibility of the present and future.
Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh also addressed the gathering. He “rejects the culture of constant self-praise & jumlas of PM as against solid policy framework for driving the engine of growth."
Speaking on the economy of the country, Dr Singh reportedly said that the government’s claim of doubling farm income will ‘'require an Agri Growth Rate of 14%, which is nowhere in sight".
