There is no comparison between Indira Gandhi & Narendra Modi, says Sonia Gandhi
She said that, this comparison does not trouble her as she does not believe in this and maintained a clear view.
She has also rejected suggestions that the party did not have leaders to take him on.
The top leader of the Congress said that her party was always taking on the Modi government.
Every era of politics has its own problems: Sonia Gandhi
While replying to a question, she said every era has its own problems, its own leaders and also its own opposition. The top leader of the party rejected the suggestion that her party did not have leaders to take on the Modi government.
To another question that whether her party did not have a tough and competitive leader like Modi, she said, “I do not agree with that.”
She has also recalled that Indira Gandhi was ridiculed, insulted and also made fun of from within even more than outside when she initially entered politics, became a Congress president and later Prime Minister.
There was nothing that she did was right. She was able to “overcome” that, Gandhi said.
Sonia Gandhi also enlightened the fact that, Indira Gandhi was not keen on joining politics, but she did because of the country.
When asked about the Emergency, she said if Indira Gandhi had not felt extremely uncomfortable with it at some stage, she would have not called for an election.
Sonia Gandhi said she joined politics to uphold the values of her mother-in-law and that of the Congress.
“I thought on my side, it was a bit of coward to not join. At that time there was nothing else in mind, but uphold the ideals of not just my mother-in-law, my husband and the party,” she said.
