Congress leader AK Antony while inaugurating the Janamahayatra led by Mullappally Ramachandran said,next edition Lok Sabha polls will be a ‘second Kurukshetra battle’.
The former defence minister added that it was Rahul Gandhi’s task to defeat the ‘Kauravas’ led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The upcoming Lok Sabha election is not just a battle for a change of leadership, but a war to save the country, its constitution and democratic values,”he reminded.
Antony claimed Congress had the support of all other parties ,who want to safeguard secularism in the country.
Talking about the situation in Kerala,he said election will be a shock treatment for Pinaray,who tries to divide people in the name of religion and political greed.“The government tried to destroy the unity of Kerala that was witnessed during the devastating floods. Instead of trying to rebuild Kerala, Pinarayi is trying to apply divide and rule strategy.He deserves a perfect reply,said Antony.
