It seems for the first time that someone from the Gandhi-Nehru family has silenced the critics, who have been accusing the Congress of running dynastic politics within the party.

Speaking to the media after addressing an election rally at Sarupathar in Assam’s Golaghat district, Priyanka Gandhi said that the Congress party is not about the Gandhi family, rather it is an idea on which India was built.

“Congress is not the Gandhi family, it is the idea on which the nation was built,” Priyanka Gandhi said while silencing critics.

“Congress is not going anywhere. The ideals of Congress will remain alive and the party will embody them as long as it takes,” added Priyanka Gandhi.

Priyanka Gandhi further said that the Congress’ fight is not only against the BJP, but also against the saffron party’s ideology.

“Congress is fighting a very strong and united battle, not just against the BJP’s government, but also against their ideology,” said Priyanka Gandhi.

“We are fighting against the BJP’s assault on Assam’s identity,” added Priyanka Gandhi.

“The Congress party and the citizens of Assam will together usher in peace, progress and prosperity,” said Priyanka Gandhi.
