Taking on the Narendra Modi government Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Thursday said the country is being run by "angry people".
"Those who have launched 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' are spreading poison in society," Rahul said while addressing the 125th birth anniversary celebrations of Jawaharlal Nehru.
"This is the only country which won its war of independence with love. Today India is ruled by people who are angry," he said.
Congress is the only party which could take the country forward through love and brotherhood, he added.
"Whatever this country has done in the last 60-70 years, the basis of all this is nothing but love and brotherhood. This organisation has been built on that thought," he said
"Today, there are attempts to divide us and the country," Rahul said taking a jibe at the ruling BJP.
The Congress vice president admitted that the party had made some mistakes but said that the Congress has never swayed from its ideology.
Keen to resurrect Jawaharlal Nehru's legacy at a trying time for the party, the Congress is organising an international conference from November 17-18 to mark his 125th birth anniversary.
The party, however, has not invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi or any other leader from the Bharartiya Janata Party for the event to be held at Vigyan Bhavan in Delhi.
