Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote today in a blog on the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's 1930 Dandi March, targeting the opposition party and the Gandhi family on a day the Congress Working Committee meets for a strategy session in his home state Gujarat.
Mahatma Gandhi wanted the Grand Old party to be disbanded after 1947 because he realized its culture is the “anti-thesis” of Gandhian ideology, said PM. “In many of his works, Gandhi Ji said he does not believe in inequality and caste divisions. Sadly, the Congress has never hesitated from dividing society,” Modi said in a blog post on a day the Congress is scheduled to meet in Ahmedabad for the CWC meeting to finalize its strategy for the Lok Sabha elections. Quoting Gandhi as saying that misgovernance and corruption always go together, PM Modi said while his government had "done everything" to punish the corrupt, "...the nation has seen how Congress and corruption have become synonyms. Name the sector and there will be a Congress scam- from defence, telecom, irrigation, sporting events to agriculture, rural development and more."
He quoted Gandhi as saying: "I am sorry to have to say that many Congressmen have looked upon this item (Swaraj) as a mere political necessity and not as something indispensable....I would go to the length of giving the whole Congress a decent burial, rather than put up with the corruption that is rampant."
He signed off with the comment that "thankfully", today the country has a government that is "working on Bapu's path and a Jan Shakti that is fulfilling his dream of freeing India from the Congress Culture!"
Gandhi, said the Prime Minister, had understood the Congress culture very well, "which is why he wanted the Congress disbanded, especially after 1947".
