Congress leaders, on the occasion of the 97th birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi today, resented comparison between her and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and vented anger at him for giving a miss to her martyrdom day function on October 31.

“Kahan Raja Bhoj, kahan Gangu Teli (Where is the comparison?)There could be no comparison between them. Indira Gandhi stood for unity, while Narendra Modi is known for dividing the society and the country,” Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee (BPCC) President Ashok Chaudhary said at a function to commemorate the birth anniversary celebrations of the former PM.

Other Congress leaders also launched a scathing attack on Narendra Modi for ignoring Gandhi on her martyrdom day.

“What Modi has done will bring much harm to him. He did not insult Gandhi by his action, as he has no power to do so. Instead his actions have started the ‘Krishna Paksha’ or (waning phase of moon) for his party. This will now stop with an ‘Amawasya’ for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP),” said former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar.

Kumar was speaking at a function organised at Miller High School ground in the state capital to commemorate the former Prime Minister’s birth anniversary.

“Indira Gandhi is not a person. She is a thought. She is a symbol of capability, courage and strength. Modi cannot lessen it, and we have to show it to him,” Meira Kumar added.

The former Lok Sabha Speaker, daughter of socialist leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Jagjivan Ram, pointed out that Modi boasts that he used to sell tea to people, but Congress is a party, which has worked for those “from whose hands people do not take tea.”

Senior Congress leader and former Kerala Governor Nikhil Kumar paid rich tributes to Gandhi and said she worked for the unity of the nation and sacrificed her life for it.

“On the other hand our current PM is of an RSS organisation, with which the killers of Mahatma Gandhi were associated and which wants the division of India. Modi has insulted Indira Gandhi by cancelling her martyrdom function,” added Nikhil Kumar.

The former Kerala Governor said the people of the country will not tolerate this insult to the former PM and raised a slogan ‘Indira Gandhi ka yah apmaan, nahi sahega Hindustan’ (India will not tolerate this insult of Indira Gandhi). He also said that she will inspire the Congress in regaining its identity.

Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader and former Bihar Assembly Speaker Sadanand Singh said this slogan will be taken to every nook and corner of the country to bring the party back to power.

“The entire issue is now of the prestige of Congress and Indira. She cannot be forgotten in today’s situation. She had given direction to progress and politics in the country,” Singh added.
Speaking on the occasion, All India Congress Committee (AICC) Secretary Shakeel Ahmad Khan said the time for ideological battle has come and it has begun on the birth anniversary of the former PM.

“We don’t need to become crutches for others. The direction of the wind is changing. Our workers should move with Indira Jyoti to villages and inspire people and win the ideological battle,” Khan added.

      They are again showing their feudal mindset by calling her Raja. She was made PM thru a dynastic hierarchy power transfer. Modi is a common mans self made Raja. No dynastical king or queen can beat him.

          Untouchability of thought in India persists. Just because Nathuram Godse was once ociated with RSS, Congress will never forget and move forward. Congress shall look up to the BJP and RSS in their current avatar.

              Yes, how can Madame emergency be compared with the simple Modiji, who is loved by millions of Indians and foreigners. Where is the special schemes for black marketers introduced by madame emergency and the handing over the list to Supreme court or taking up the issue at G20. We pray to god not to remind emergency or the services of Nehru family to remove democracy in India.
