- Congress President Sonia Gandhi today said that the presidential poll is a fight against narrow-minded communal vision.
- Numbers may be against us, but battle must be fought and fought hard, she said.
NEW DELHI: A day before the presidential election, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Sunday described the electoral contest as a fight against a “narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision”.
Hitting out at the NDA government, Sonia said “numbers may be against us, but battle must be fought and fought hard.”
“We can’t and must not let India be hostage to those who wish to impose upon it narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision,” the Congress president said.
“We must have confidence in the values we believe in. This election represents a clash of ideas, a conflict of disparate values. The election demands a vote of conscience to preserve the India that the Mahatma and that illustrious generation of freedom fighters, joined by thousands upon thousands of ordinary men and women, fought for,” she said.
