WHILE THE tirade against Sonia by her critics is now on the wane following her resignation from the membership of Lok Sabha and National advisory Council Chairperson’s post, her party colleagues have stepped up their campaign against Opposition leaders.

Secretary, UP Congress Committee Javed Urfi said, Sonia Gandhi had taken right decision at the right time. “Dignity and morality for her is more important and that is why she has taken such a bold decision. She has again set an example in the political history of the country,” he claimed.

General secretary, State Youth Congress Alok Pandey and his colleagues burnt an effigy of BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani at the Civil Lines crossing and raised slogans against him.Prominent leaders who assembled on the occasion included Raghunath Dwivedi, Ramji Pandey, Prabhat Mukherji, Munna Misra, Dinesh Singh, N. Chatterji, Shashi Kant Tripathi, Prabhakar Pandey and others.

General secretary, city Youth Congress, Suresh Chandra Saxena said, to retain even small posts people seek intervention of courts but Sonia by her resignation had proved that posts had no meaning for her. Congratulating Sonia at a meeting, other party leaders resolved to stand firmly by her and strengthen the party. Among those who assembled on the occasion included Heera Lal Malviya, Raj Kumar Yadav, Raj Kumar Singh, Neel Kamal Tewari, Shiv Nath Yadav, Azhar Ali and several others.

District Youth Congress leaders led by president Mukund Tewari took out a procession from the statue of Indira Gandhi. The procession terminated at the statue of Ambedkar where the leaders burnt an effigy of Mulayam and Advani. They also shouted slogans against these leaders. The step should serve as an example to the opposition leaders who should emulate her, said Pandey.

PCC member Harikesh Tripathi said, Sonia Gandhi’s step cannot be forgotten in Indian politics. Her step would strengthen moral and ethical values in politics which the present day generation leaders had forgotten, he said.City Youth Congress leaders took out a padyatra in support of Sonia Gandhi. Earlier they held a meeting at the Anand Bhawan gate. Party president Vijay Bahadur Singh, while speaking on the occasion said, with her resignation Sonia Gandhi had silenced all her critics. And now the Opposition was trying to hide its face.
