Sonia Gandhi: Fight fiercely against ‘baseless’ allegations’

Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi slammed the opposition for levelling "baseless" allegations against the Prime Minister and the Congress-led UPA.
Sonia Gandhi said "In a democracy, it is the job of the opposition to oppose but the manner in which opposition and some anti-Congress elements are, as part of a conspiracy, levelling baseless allegations against the Prime Minister, the UPA government, the party and some of our colleagues, is a matter of regret."
"We will have to fight fiercely against such allegations at the party and the government levels," added Sonia Gandhi.
The UPA Chairperson also said that the whole world was passing through a difficult phase and we have to face it and we are facing it. Sonia Gandhi added that the report to the people brought out on the third anniversary on the UPA government was a "document of success in spite of the difficulties."
The Congress leader further said that the party has to be strengthened at all levels ahead of a series of state elections as also the Lok Sabha polls in 2014. "And for this, the most important thing is that we all work unitedly," added the Congress leader.
Sonia Gandhi told the Congress leaders that unity is the need of the hour. The Congress President added that the strength of the organisation would grow doubly if partymen use half the energy that they waste on factionalism and petty issues. "People will behave with the party in the same manner as its image would emerge in their mind based on the opinion they form about us," said the Congress President, adding that when a political evaluation takes place, it is always based on the organisation and not an individual.
"This is a test for us as a Congress worker. Not to understand this will be a big mistake. It is a matter of caution, warning and challenge for all," Sonia Gandhi said.
The Congress President said she was confident that partymen could take on any challenge, "provided we do not demoralise them in their politics."
Sonia Gandhi said the Congress has created history in the last 126 years due to the inner strength of the party workers. "If we step ahead by realising this potential as our asset, then we can achieve any objective. We will get the support of people. We have to win," she said.
