The Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) on Friday reaffirmed to never retreat its fight to save democracy from the hand of the Modi-led BJP government, which it termed "pro-capitalist and dictatorial".
Expressing solidarity to party leader Rahul Gandhi, who has been rapidly attacked by the BJP for raising the "voice of truth" against Adani and Modi, the Congress launched a nationwide "Jai Bharat Satyagraha" movement since March 29, the MPCC said.
As a part of the movement, the various sub-units of the Congress party met the mediapersons at their respective districts to highlight the "crony capitalism and suppression of democracy by the BJP government", the MPCC added.
In one of such press meetings held at Nongmeibung Community Hall in Imphal East organised by the City District Congress Committee, MPCC vice-president Hareshwar Goswami deliberated on why the BJP government launched a series of attacks on Rahul Gandhi.
The attack is a pre-planned conspiracy to suppress Rahul's voice from Parliament, he said, adding "however nothing can stop the Congress party from speaking the truth".
He asserted that the Congress will never retreat its non-violence fight against the Modi government until democracy is fully restored and corrupted corporations like Adani are punished.
The press briefing was also attended by president of City District Congress Committee G Dayananda Sharma and MPCC vice-president Vidyapati Senjam among other Congress leaders.
