Maharashtra episode- Democracy vindicated: PCC chief
The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief, Pritam Singh has said that in the Maharashtra episode, the democratic forces have stood vindicated while fascist elements have received a crushing blow. He said that the decision to constitute BJP government in Maharashtra was anti democratic and it amounted to murder of the democracy. He said that the Congress party has full faith in the constitution of India and its democratic institutions. Pritam claimed that the people of the country would take note of the fact that BJP has polluted and tainted the politics of the country and would teach it appropriate lesson. He said that the BJP retorted to anti democratic measures to destabalise governments in Uttarakhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Odisha, Bihar and Delhi. “In Uttarakhand the democracy and Indian constitutions triumphed in the end by the decision of Supreme Court (SC) and the resignation of Chief Minister and deputy CM of Maharashtra today after the order of floor test by the SC has again proved that history repeats itself and the democracy ultimately triumphs,’’ he said.
The PCC chief said that the BJP should seek apology from the people of the country for the entire episode. The state general secretary of the Congress, Vijay Saraswat said that the BJP should understand that truth cannot be defeated by the use of muscle and money power. Terming the episode as milestone in the Indian politics, he said that the people of the states going to the polls would teach a lesson to the party.
