Referring to Gandhi as her ‘boss’, Sonia highlighted the accomplishments of the Congress party since Rahul took over the reigns of the party. As per ANI, Sonia, during the Congress Parliamentary Party meet said, “We performed very creditably under tough circumstances in Gujarat and recent by-election results in Rajasthan were huge. This shows winds of change are coming. I am sure Karnataka too will underline resurgence of Congress.”

Cementing Rahul Gandhi’s position as the party president in the hearts of Congress leaders, Sonia said, “We have a new Congress president and on your behalf and my own I wish him all the best. He is now my boss too. Let there be no doubt about that.” During the party’s parliamentary meet, she also attacked the BJP and accused the saffron party of using central agencies for political vendetta. She said, “It has been almost four years since this government came to power, this has been a period in which institutions which have come under systematic assault-Parliament itself, judiciary, media and civil society. Investigative agencies have been let loose against political opponents.”

Sonia’s statements come a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused Congress of crushing democracy.
