Allegations of Targeting Rahul Gandhi
During the protest, Mr. Sundaresh addressed the media and accused the Union Government of specifically targeting Rahul Gandhi due to his rising popularity. He claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could not tolerate Rahul Gandhi’s increasing influence and thus engaged in a campaign of harassment against him.
Mr. Sundaresh highlighted that while it is common for rival parties to criticize each other, the BJP went a step further and filed a defamation case against Rahul Gandhi for political reasons.
Disqualification of Rahul Gandhi and Harassment of Sonia Gandhi
Continuing his statement, Mr. Sundaresh alleged that the BJP deliberately got Rahul Gandhi disqualified as a member of parliament as they were unable to face him politically. He further criticized the BJP for harassing Sonia Gandhi in the National Herald case.
These instances were cited as examples of the Centre’s alleged vendetta politics against the Congress party and its leaders.
Criticism of Centre’s Refusal to Supply Rice
Mr. Sundaresh also criticized the Centre for denying the supply of rice to the Karnataka Government, despite the Food Corporation of India (FCI) having sufficient stock.
He claimed that this decision hindered the implementation of the Anna Bhagya scheme, which aims to provide subsidized rice to the needy. The criticism of the Centre’s actions further strengthened the party’s claims of vendetta politics.
Support from Party Members and Leaders
The protest received support from various Congress party members and leaders. Former legislator Prasanna Kumar and members of the Shivamogga City Corporation joined the protest, demonstrating solidarity with the cause.
Additionally, E. Lakshman, the president of the Hassan district unit, and party leader Shreyas Patel were also present to show their support.
