The Congress has always advocated inclusive growth of every section of the society irrespective of caste, creed and religion, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said in Tawang on Friday.
"Every section of people has a place in the Congress and no other parties embraces all races, languages and communities like us. Our ideology is based on the visions of our great leaders," Chidamabaram told a public rally in Tawang in Tawang district bordering China.
He said providing people right to information, education, identity, work and food was the sole objective of the Congress as these rights made life better for every citizen.
The UPA government's main goal, he said, was to abolish poverty and it always batted for uniform development in all parts of the country and for the common people.
"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has made India proud with a visionary zeal which resulted in visit of five presidents and prime ministers (Britain, US, France, China and Russia) to India during this year.
"Their visit is a pointer to the fact that India is fast emerging as a super power," he said.
Stating that the UPA government would ensure that the entire nation remained united, he said, "We will defend the security of India and every individual and no part of the country will be allowed to break away."
The minister also urged the state government to stress on development activities and not to think of security.
"Focus on development and leave the security aspect to us," he said.
