Some of the other leaders present at the occasion were Mallikarjun Kharge, Ghulab Nabi Azad, Rajeev Shukla, and Priyanka Gandhi. However, Rahul Gandhi, who is expected to return as the next party president, was missing from the scene as he had left for abroad just a day before the Foundation Day of the Congress.
On the occasion of the Foundation Day, Rahul Gandhi tweeted saying, “The Congress has been committed from the beginning to raise the voice of the nation. Today, on the foundation day of the Congress, we reiterate our pledge of truth and equality. Jai Hind!”
The Congress has planned two events — Tiranga Rally and Selfie with Tiranga — to celebrate its Foundation Day. The Congress has asked its workers to take a Selfie with Tiranga and make a pledge to uphold India’s values of unity and plurality.
After the flag-hoisting ceremony at party headquarters, Priyanaka Gandhi today targeted the Centre again over the ongoing farmers’ protests. She said it was a sin to use the kind of words they (government) are using for farmers. “The government is answerable to farmers. Government should listen to them and take back the laws,” she said.
