‘’Such a thing,’’ he added, ‘’normally happens in dictatorships.’’
“It happened in Pakistan and Africa. But this happened for the first time in 70 years in India,” he said, referring to the Supreme Court’s judges press conference earlier this year.
‘’RSS is making way into all institutions in the country. Aisa Pakistan ya tanashahi mein hota hai,’’ the Congress president said in Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur. While Congress president Rahul Gandhi said India mourns the defeat of democracy, the party’s communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala described the events in Karnataka as a “black spot” on the country’s democracy that will be erased.
Earlier in the day, the Gandhi scion had accused the BJP of making a mockery of the Indian Constitution. Rahul taking to his Twitter handle said that this day India will mourn the defeat of democracy.
