Rahul Gandhi follows mamma Gandhi’s footsteps: Writes to Uddhav Thackeray, regrets not being able to attend swearing-in

Following his mother's footstep, who in her letter had written about ‘threats to the country’ from BJP, Rahul too said that BJP had attempted to 'undermine democracy' and that he was glad that Vikas Aghadi has come together to defeat BJP in its endeavour.

After almost a month-long political logjam in Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray is set to become the chief minister of the state. Soon after Congress’ interim President Sonia Gandhi wrote a letter to Uddhav Thackeray regretting that she will not be able to attend the swearing-in ceremony, Rahul Gandhi followed suit.

He too has written a letter to the Shiv Sena chief. While congratulating him on taking oath as Maharashtra’s CM today, he informed him that he would be unable to attend the ceremony.

Read: Sonia Gandhi to not attend Uddhav Thackeray swearing-in ceremony, writes letter about ‘threats to country’ from BJP

The letter was written by Rahul Gandhi to Uddhav Thackeray

Interestingly, in her letter, Sonia Gandhi spoke about the dangers of the BJP. She wrote that Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP have come together under “extraordinary circumstances” at a time when the country “faces unprecedented threats from the BJP”. She writes that the political atmosphere has become “poisonous” and that the BJP has ruined the economy. She also talks about the distress being faced by farmers.

In what almost sounds like a taunt to Shiv Sena, she says that she is confident that all three parties will strive to implement the Common Minimum Program and provide a purposeful government to the people of Maharashtra.

Earlier today, the Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP CMP were released where it was revealed that Shiv Sena had agreed to be a part of a government that upholds the “secular values of the Constitution”. The CMP, among other promises, mentions that the alliance will pass a law that proves for 80% job reservation to locals from Maharashtra.
