New Delhi,
Feb 13. Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said the
Congress alone spoke for the whole of India within the opposition ranks and
predicted that the 2019 Lok Sabha election outcome will stun Prime Minister
Narendra Modi.

Addressing
Congress MPs after his mother and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi had spoken,
Rahul Gandhi said his party was now defeating the BJP in the ideological fight
and in the daily news cycle and said his MPs had fought “animosity and
unfairness” over the last five years.

Accusing the
Modi government of launching “systematic attacks” on
institutions and causing divisions in the society, Gandhi said that after five
years of Modi regime, the Congress’ name was firmly entrenched in the minds of
the people.

Gandhi,
whose speech saw repeated thumping of desks by MPs, said that the results of
the Lok Sabha battle will be a stunner.

“You
will get a shock as to what is going to happen in 2019. This would not have
been possible if you had not defended our position in Parliament,” he
said.

Attacking
Modi over corruption, he said: “There is not a single leg for the Prime
Minister to stand on. You can see it on his face, you can see the expression.
The bluster has gone.”

Shri Gandhi
said the Congress stood out among other opposition parties as it spoke for the
country and it was the first to defend the idea of India.

“With
respect to all my opposition friends, there is only one party that speaks for
the entire country. Every other party speaks for a part of Indian society, and
we say this with a lot of pride that we are the uniting party in this
country.”

Shri Gandhi
said BJP leaders were afraid to speak their mind.

“There
is only one voice in the Lok Sabha in the BJP and that’s Narendra Modi. Before
they speak they think ‘What is he (Modi) going to say, what is he going to
think’ and this is what is systematically being done.”

Congress
president said the common man had realised that “Modi is not what he
claimed to be, that the RSS is not what they claim to be”.

He said
modern India arises out of the Constitution.

“We see
what is going on today and you can look anywhere. You can look at the Supreme
Court, where four judges came out. It’s being done to the Election Commission,
it’s being done to the defence forces, it’s being done to Parliament. This is
what you are fighting… And we are actually now winning,” he said to
cheers.

Shri Gandhi also led a protest against the government in the parliament House complex. Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi were among those who took part in the protest.
