Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that these are testing times for Indian democracy and asked if there is freedom in the country to disagree?
When the whole country was celebrating the 74th anniversary of independence, the country’s largest opposition party, Congress was as asking questions to the government about independence. Sonia Gandhi issued a statement in which she said that these are testing times for the Indian democracy. She alleged that the central government is standing contrary to the democratic system. She further said in her message that every countryman needs to look into the conscience and think what freedom means?
