Singh added that this practice of harassing and humiliating leaders of Congress party is objectionable and the party condemns it.
He added that the democratic face of the BJP has got exposed.
The PCC president said that the FIR against Congress president Sonia Gandhi is based on false information. He demanded that the action should be taken against police personnel responsible for filing report. He added that the Congress party has complete faith in Indian constitution and judiciary and the party respects them. Singh said that India is a democratic country and in democracy the opposition has every right to ask questions.
He said that Sonia Gandhi is right in asking the question that why the money of PM cared fund is not being used in helping the labourers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Singh said that BJP ruled states are trying to hide their failure to control the pandemic by taking such actions against Congress leaders.
“It is not a healthy democracy and shows the dictatorial attitude of Narendra Modi government. The fabricated cases should be taken back and the Prime Minister Modi should render an apology to the Congress leaders.
The Congress party workers would fight this conspiracy of BJP unitedley and would continue to raise the voice of people at every forum,’’ he said.
