A day before Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday anniversary, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday attacked at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying that the precious legacy of independent India’s first prime minister was being undermined on a regular basis by those ruling the country presently.
She also appealed to people of India to fight with determination to safeguard the country’s democracy against those undermining it.
Sonia Gandhi while addressing a gathering at the launch of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s new edition of his 2003 book ‘Nehru: The Invention of India said,” Precious legacy of Nehru is being undermined daily by those who rule us today. They express disdain for Nehru for all that he did to build India that they are bent upon changing for worse. Today we must honour him by fighting with determination to safeguard democracy.”
