Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on October 31st, 2019, alleged that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has ‘hijacked’ Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel from Congress.

Speaking on the occasion of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s death anniversary, the senior Congress leader said, “Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel led the Congress from the front. Now, BJP hijacked both of them.”

Besides, slamming the BJP for striving to make India a ‘Hindu nation’, Gogoi said, “BJP has put all efforts to make India a Hindu nation. But, Gandhi Ji had equal respect for each and every religion. There is a vast difference between Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha and Gandhi Ji’s ideology.”

Congress celebrated Indira Gandhi’s 35th death anniversary nationwide today while the BJP celebrated Patel’s 144th birth anniversary as the National Unity Day, which was introduced by the government of India in 2014.
