Sonia Gandhi is back, leads opponent against government
New Delhi : Congress President Sonia Gandhi seems to have taken the front seat once again
She on Tuesday led the opposition from both inside and outside the house
Surprisingly, she started the discussion on the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Amendment Bill, 2015, in the Lok Sabha.
She straight away targeted BJP government and alleged them of failing the promises made during bifurcation of the state.
On the eve of same day she was seen leading a march of 14 opposition parties from parliament to Rashtrapati Bhawan to protest against the government’s move to amend the 2014 Land Acquisition Act.
After conducting the march she addressed media and said, “We have come to the President to request him to intervene to protect the interest of our farmers and to impress upon Modi government not to go ahead with the amendments in the Rajya Sabha.”
However, JD(U) leader Sharad Pawar credited the bill as anti-farmers and also anti-india.
Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi showed his absence as he is apparently on a holiday.
