QUOTE OF THE WEEK

THUS SPAKE
We did n’t fight a political party in the 2019 election. We fought the entire machinery of the Indian state, every institution of which was marshaled against the opposition. It is now crystal clear that our once cherished institutional neutrality no longer exists in India….. There is a real danger that from now elections will go from being a determinant of India’s future to a mere ritual. The Indian nation must unite to reclaim and resuscitate our institutions. The instrument of this resuscitation will be the Congress party.

__Rahul Gandhi, former Congress President
