Rahul asks Congress workers to fight for India’s oppressed

July, 2018
New Delhi:Congress President Rahul Gandhi, chairing the first meeting of the new Congress Working Committee (CWC), on Sunday accused the BJP of oppressing the poor and Dalits and urged party workers to fight for India’s poor.

Describing the Congress as the “voice of India”, Gandhi, addressing the extended CWC meeting here, said the party had a responsibility towards the present and the future.

He said the CWC — the party’s highest decision-making body — had experience and energy and was a bridge between the past, present and future.

On July 17, Gandhi constituted the CWC by appointing 23 members and dropping some senior leaders in a bid to strike a balance between age and experience and prepare for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

The meeting was attended by senior Congress leaders including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former party President Sonia Gandhi.
