After witnessing inordinate delays and multiple deferrals, the Congress party today finally organised the Bharat Bachao rally, touted as a demonstration to protest against the Modi government’s handling of the Indian economy and “India’s deteriorating condition”.

Speaking at the Bharat Bachao rally, the former Congress President Rahul Gandhi blustered that he is Rahul Gandhi and not Rahul Savarkar to apologise for his recent remarks on rapes in India. A couple of days ago, Rahul Gandhi’s appropriation of the government initiative’s name-‘Make in India’ to comment “Rape in India” stirred a furore amongst the BJP ranks who condemned the Gandhi scion for his insensitive remarks against the rape incidents and asked him to apologise for the same.

However, Gandhi brazened out his remarks, claiming that he did not speak anything untruthful about the rape incidents. Mocking the RSS ideologue VD Savarkar, Rahul Gandhi said, “My name is Rahul Gandhi. I am not Rahul Savarkar and I will not apologise for saying the truth,” Gandhi exclaimed.

It is noteworthy to mention that Rahul Gandhi tendered an unconditional apology to the Supreme Court of India for wrongly attributing his election-time rhetoric-“Chowkidar Chor Hai” to the apex court.

In addition, Rahul Gandhi also attacked the government on the shrinking economy saying that the real GDP of the country lies somewhere around 2.5 per cent and not 4 per cent. He also launched an attack on the government for legislating the Citizenship Amendment Bill which seeks to grant a dignified way of life and citizenship of India to the religiously persecuted minorities in the neighbouring countries.

Rahul Gandhi was not the only one to whip up paranoia with his pompous statements. Sonia Gandhi, the interim president of the Congress party, too joined her son in making wild assertions and hyperbolic claims against the BJP government.

In what sounded like a melodramatic appeal straight out of a Bollywood film, Sonia, in her stilted Hindi asked people to prime themselves for a hard struggle against the current dispensation. “There comes a time in life when an individual, society has to shun ambivalence and take a resolute decision. This is the time to enlist oneself for a hard struggle to salvage our country,” Sonia thundered.

In yet another exaggerated assertion, Sonia Gandhi claimed that the Citizenship Amendment Bill, that aims to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities, will shred the soul of India and that Modi and Shah are indifferent to it.
