India Faces Unprecedented Threat from BJP, Sonia Gandhi Tells Uddhav Thackeray
Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi wrote a letter to Shiv Sena chief congratulating him on forming government in Maharashtra. He also expressed her inability to attend the swearing-in ceremony to be held at Shivaji Park, Mumbai on Thursday evening. “Shiv Sena, NCP & Congress have come together under quite extraordinary circumstances, at a time when the country faces unprecedented threats from BJP. I regret that I’ll not be able to be present at the ceremony,” the Congress President wrote.
Here’s the full text of Mrs. Gandhi’s letter to Mahrashtra’s CM Designate Uddhav Thackeray:
“Aditya met me yesterday and extended your kind invitation to attend the swearing-in ceremony this evening in Mumbai. I regret that I am unable to be present at the function.
The Shiv Sena, NCP, and Congress have come together under quite extraordinary circumstances at a time when the country faces unprecedented threats from the BJP. The political atmosphere has become poisonous, and the economy has collapsed. Farmers are facing great distress.
The Shiv Sena, NCP, and Congress have agreed to a common programme, and I am confident that all three parties will strive their utmost to implement that programme in letter and spirit.
The people of Maharashtra expect the alliance to provide cohesive, purposeful, responsible, responsive, and transparent administration, and our collective effort will undoubtedly be to ensure that these expectations are fulfilled.
I wish you personally all the very best as you embark on a new inning in your life.”0 Replies to “India Faces Unprecedented Threat from BJP, Sonia Gandhi Tells Uddhav Thackeray”
