On Tuesday UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi hits back at PM Narendra Modi over the IAF air strikes, accusing him of playing politics over terror. While addressing the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in Ahmedabad, Sonia said that Modi is smartly playing the victim card to manipulate people before the upcoming elections.
Initially, Congress is kick-starting its battle for 2019 with the CWC on the Prime Minister’s home turf. All eyes are hooked on the party's policy on stitching together pre- and post- poll alliances in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. The meeting is also likely to mark the debut of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who will address the committee for the first time.
On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday raised the statehood demand for Delhi again as he raised the stakes for the Lok Sabha elections. Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kejriwal said the Centre was creating hurdles in Delhi’s functioning and had been unfair to the people.
