Congress today accused the Narendra Modi dispensation of indulging in "undemocratic" practices to "destabilise and dismiss" governments in the party-ruled states.
"The Narendra Modi government at the Centre has been indulging in worst kind of undemocratic campaign of destabilising and dismissing duly-elected Congress governments in states after BJP realised that it cannot achieve its dream of 'Congress-Mukt Bharat' through elections," AICC General Secretary Ambika Soni said.
She accused Modi and BJP President Amit Shah of destabilising and dismissing Congress-led governments in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
"Imposition of President's rule is the most undemocratic way which amounted to murder of democracy," she said while addressing party workers here.
Soni asked BJP and PDP as to what transpired between the two parties for three months after the demise of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, which led to change of their hearts.
"The two parties need to explain to the people if there is any secret understanding. What happened to BJP's slogan of preventing PDP (Baap-Beti party) from coming to power? It exposes the political opportunism and its lust for power," she said.
On the developments in Srinagar NIT, Soni reiterated the demands of the party's state unit for a judicial inquiry.
Premier educational institutions should not be used for any kind undue political motives, she said.
Reiterating the commitment of Congress to ensuring adequate share to women in every sphere of life, Soni said it was Congress which formulated policies for their uplift and to ensure their participation right from panchayats to Parliament.
She expressed concern over the continued incidents of violence against women in various parts of the country and said more effective steps are needed to check these.
Lashing out at BJP for its "divisive politics", she asked the party workers to defeat such designs and not allow the people to be misled by the "false propaganda" of BJP.
"After it failed to fulfil any of its poll promises, BJP is harping on other issues to divert the attention of the people, whereas Congress has a history of sacrifices for the sake of nation and it needs no lesson from anyone on nationalism," she said.
