2G case was a conspiracy: Congress

Rahul Gandhi's India Asaduddin Owaisi: Why didn't Rahul Gandhi visit masjid?

As newly elected Congress president Rahul Gandhi chaired his first Congress Working Committee meeting on Friday, he set the tone for an aggressive campaign against the "Modi model" that will be at the heart of the party's agenda in the run-up to the 2019 elections.

Former telecom minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and all other accused were recently acquitted by a special court in the 2G spectrum scam case.

According to Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, who led the march, Congress MPs would voice their protest inside Parliament and while the party's workers would protest on the streets to take this fight to the logical conclusion.

Rahul became the party President on December 16, two days before the results of Gujarat Assembly elections were declared.

Tewari said acquittals in the 2G cases have focused attention on a very critical aspect which is the efficacy of CAG report which were formulated during the time when Vinod Rai was heading it. He termed the Gujarat campaign as "unique" and "a real eye-opener" for him, where he got to know how the BJP designs campaigns and "uses hatred and untruth" to fight elections. "The BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principal strategy to gain power". The truth is, however, out in the open that BJP made a profession out of its conspiracy of lies and falsehoods to gain power at any cost. "Should Modi, Arun Jaitley and other BJP leaders be not held accountable for conspiring with Vinod Rai to malign the Congress?"

While Sonia Gandhi continues to be the CPP leader, there are mixed views among leaders on whether she should soon hand over the leadership of the parliamentary wing of the party as well.

"I have declared unconditional support to BJP", Rathod told reporters here.

"One thing very clearly emerges that even all the other CAG reports, which were tabled during the tenure of Vinod Rai were figments of imagination, were specifically created to vitiate the atmosphere and they need to be consigned to the dustbin of history", he said.
