Sonia Gandhi in Kerala: Opposition creates threat to the unity and integrity of our country
Congress President and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi visited Thrissur, Kerala to address a party election rally. While speaking at the occasion she said, “We want an India that all our democratic institutions to be strong but our opponents seek to weaken these institutions. They promote one man rule.”

Our ideology binds our people together; their ideology separates one Indian from another,” said Sonia Gandhi.
“In Kerala we are fighting a different battle; we fight with an ideology which is redundant. Congress believes in Mahatma Gandhi’s principle of non violence,” Sonia Gandhi said and added, “But our opposition in Kerala spreads violence indulges in political killings and encourages political hatred.”
“In the last ten years India witnessed tremendous economic growth and we took several people out of poverty,” said the UPA chairperson.
