In an attempt to send out the message of “simplicity” on Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, Congress leaders including party chief Rahul Gandhi were seen washing utensils at Sevagram, Mahatma Gandhi’s ashram in Wardha on Tuesday, October 2.
During the Congress Working Committee meeting, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked Bharatiya Janata Party for not withstanding Gandhi’s non-violence philosophy even on the occasion of International Non-Violence day.
“On the occasion of World Non-Violence Day, the BJP Government is committing atrocities on farmers. The Government’s celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary have started with police action on peacefully protesting farmers. The farmers cannot even agitate in the national capital now,” Gandhi tweeted even while he was chairing the meeting of CWC.
The CWC meeting is under way to discuss the party’s strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections where Rahul Gandhi is expected to lay down the party’s political vision and will again reiterate his commitment to Gandhian philosophy in preparation for the next year’s election.
