Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala has stated that Rahul Gandhi should obtain the leadership of the Congress to establish a definite national alternative. The press release which includes excerpts of the letter written to Rahul Gandhi asking for this, in the period, when the country’s secularism, democracy, economic security and federal governance are facing serious challenges.
He reinforces that Rahul Gandhi is the only alternative to Narendra Modi’s dictatorial rule.
“People have become hopeless and uninspired in any way. Chennithala reminded Rahul Rahul, quoting Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s famous work, “Discovering India”, that people have no passion and no motivation for the journey ahead and simply seek refuge in the prisons of the past”, Ramesh Chennithala said.
He added, “The very essence of our Constitution, carefully crafted by the architects of the Constitution under the leadership of your grandfather Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, is being systematically weakened and destroyed by the present rulers. As Panditji writes, we are gradually moving away from hope and the spirit of nationalism”.
Chennithala pointed out Prime Minister Narendra Modi is creating intentional attempts to threaten the Constitution, parliamentary democracy, federalism and secularism. This can never be admitted in deceiving the whole peace-loving citizens of this nation.
He strongly criticised that Narendra Modi-Amit Shah alliance is challenging the universal values of the nation with the economic influence and misuse of power, which slays the fundamental principles of democracy. “The Modi government has not executed anything in combating the Covid-19 pandemic, on CAA – related issues and Indo-China diplomacy. The nation views the Nehru family with hope in resolving all these issues, safeguarding the economic security of the country and maintaining a secular and democratic structure”, he added scrutinising the Modi government.
In the letter, Ramesh Chennithala states that the youthful and dynamic leadership of Rahul Gandhi is crucial in empowering Congress to succeed in the provocations and crookedness posed by the BJP government. It is time to nullify the 2019 decision. Not only the Congress but all the secular and liberal citizens of the nation are waiting for Rahul Gandhi’s guidance. Now, India lacks the care, love and compassion that Rahul Gandhi manifests, not the dares of hatred raised by Narendra Modi. That is why the nation craves his leadership, Chennithala urges.
