Assessing aa press conference ahead of the Congress party’s nationwide protest against unemployment and price rise. Rahul Gandhi said that “India was no longer a democracy, but a dictatorship run by four people. “India is witnessing the death of democracy”, the Congress leader said. “What India has built brick by brick, starting almost a century ago, is being destroyed in front of your eyes. Anybody who stands against this idea of onset of dictatorship is viciously attacked, jailed, arrested and beaten up.”
इस तानाशाह सरकार को डर लग रहा है।— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) August 5, 2022
भारत की हालत से, कमरतोड़ महंगाई और ऐतिहासिक बेरोज़गारी से, अपनी नीतियों से लायी बर्बादी से।
जो सच्चाई से डरता है, वो ही आवाज़ उठाने वालों को धमकाता है!
