In Modi’s Gujarat, Priyanka targets PM, says ‘winds of hate will be blown away by love’

Breaking News Kashmir

In her first rally as congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadhra in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Gujarat, Gandhi targeted Modi saying hate was being spread in the nation.

“Your vote is a weapon,” the 47-year-old Congress general secretary said to a crowd in Gandhinagar

“Think and decide – those who talk big in front of you, where are the jobs he promised? What about the Rs. 15 lakh he promised? What about women’s safety?” she was quoted as saying by NDTV.

“Those who talk about fitrat (nature), the fitrat of this country is that the winds of hate will be blown away by love.”

Priyanka Gandhi’s first ever political rally followed her debut in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting earlier today.

“This nation is based on love and brotherhood. It is sad at what is happening in the country these days. There is no bigger patriotism than awareness,” she said.

Kashmir needs independent journalism…

…now, more than ever to give a voice to the voiceless. The press in Kashmir has operated under tremendous pressures of reporting from a conflict zone but since August 2019 we find ourselves in unchartered territory. The Kashmir Walla is among the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has withstood successive lockdowns as well as attempts to suppress us, fighting back with authoritative ground reports based on facts.

We believe in making the powers that be accountable to their actions but to also hold the mirror to the society. We believe in covering all sides of the story and that empowerment in essence means the ability to make informed decisions. As such we have not allowed our journalism to be influenced by the pressures.

Despite the new and still unknown pressures, we are all the more committed to keep informing you of events and stories that matter. Our recent coverage of events has brought us an increased readership. However, the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic crisis has affected our operational capabilities. We are facing an existential threat but only your support can help us withstand this and maintain our editorial independence.

We need your solidarity to keep our journalism going. Your contribution will empower us to keep you informed on stories that matter from Kashmir. Show your solidarity by joining our members community. Kashmir thanks you.
