Congress president Sonia Gandhi reiterated her party’s resolve to develop infrastructure in Mumbai and make the megapolis a global city.
On Monday, Gandhi said at inaugural function of the Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan — the Mumbai Region Congress Committee’s renovated office — that her party’s commitment for developing every section saw the people returning the Congress to power at the centre. “This is for the first time after 1991 that the Congress won such a huge support (from voters).”
“Mumbai is a pride of our country and we’re committee to make available all facilities to its citizen,” Gandhi said.
“I’m confident that Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra will vote for the Congress in (ensuing) Assembly polls as well,” she said while setting the tone for party election campaign.
But with that came a word of caution for the incumbent Congress-led Democratic Front Government. “The (developmental) work never ends. Whenever one work ends, it’s time for us to take up new task.”
“There are challenges ahead and we are ready to meet them. We will continue to work hard until we achieve saccha swaraj (independence in true sense),” she told the party workers.
