Congress President Sonia Gandhi held a meeting with leaders of 19 opposition parties including her own party on Friday. This meeting took place through video conferencing. The purpose of the meeting was to unite the opposition against the Modi government. However, soon after the meeting, Sonia Gandhi started trending on social media. People started taunting him. He said that the Congress, failing to keep the senior leaders of its party together, is trying to unite the opposition. What a surprise
Well-known filmmaker and producer Ashok Pandit, writer and director Ravi Rai, among others, made fun of the meeting. Ashok Pandit tweeted and wrote that Sonia Gandhi, who has failed to keep her senior Congress leaders together, is trying to unite the opposition parties. What would be a bigger surprise than that?
Ravi Rai wrote that how many times will the opposition parties unite against Narendra Modi? How many times will Sonia Gandhi lead these opposition fronts with different names?
On the other hand, BJP also ridiculed Sonia Gandhi’s meeting. Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said that the Congress has shrunk to a ‘virtual party’. It not only conducts virtual meetings, but its existence has also been reduced to virtual platforms only. Congress has lost the trust of the country. He has lost confidence in himself too. That is why he has started looking for allies.
