Rahul leads Congress fast at Rajpath to protest against govt

Rahul Gandhi concludes phase six of his campaign in Karnataka

Congress president Rahul Gandhi arrives at Rajghat before stating day-long fast against caste violence, communalism and the non-functioning of Parliament at Rajghat, in New Delhi on Monday. Gandhi also said that the Congress will defeat the BJP-led NDA in the 2019 general election.

Gandhi also accused the government of suppressing and intimidating the media. While Kumar left the venue soon thereafter, Tytler sat in the audience along with party workers.

Congress party's hunger strike plan on Monday to attack BJP over atrocities against Dalits bounced back, as a picture of Delhi Congress leaders eating "chhola bhaturas" at a restaurant is doing rounds on the internet. "Rahul Gandhi can not wake up early, he can not skip a meal and he is talking about bringing change in the country", BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters. They owe an apology to the nation", Union Minister for Social Justice Thavarchand Gehlot tweeted.BJP's Sambit Patra said: "The Congress fell for its own trap.

"It is BJP's ideology to oppress Dalits, Adivasis and minorities of this country", Rahul said who is leading the protest against the BJP-led government at the Centre.

Another BJP spokesperson Bizay Sonkar Shastri raked up the Congress' alleged ill-treatment of Dalit icon Bhimrao Ambedkar and said it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had been working overtime to fulfil Ambedkar's dreams. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this.

"Congress" Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken and former cabinet minister Arvinder Singh Lovely, along with other party leaders, were photographed digging into platefuls of chhole bhature at an eatery. "But we will not let that happen and will continue to raise concerns of the people", Maken told Mail Today. "(It was) an attempt by his party to fast track his politics to burnish his credentials despite people rejecting him time and again", Sambit Patra told reporters. "It is a day-long fast not an indefinite fast, which started at 10.30am", said Singh. Taking a dig at Gandhi, Patra told reporters that "he can not wake up in morning to start his fast on schedule".

Countering Congress allegations against the BJP, Patra said poll-bound Karnataka had reported 9,080 cases of crimes against Dalits and 358 Dalits were killed in the five years of Congress rule in the state.

"This is a fight for the ideology and values which India represents".

"Aren't we allowed to eat before 11 am", he asked. Asked about the row over Kumar and Tytler, he said, "Some conspirators in the BJP try to find meaning in everything small or big thing".
