Congress to hold ‘save democracy’ rally on Friday

New Delhi, May 5 (IANS) The Congress will organise a “save democracy” rally here on Friday to make the public aware about how the Narendra Modi government is “damaging institutions”, party leader Jairam Ramesh said.

“It’s aimed to save country’s democracy as states are being harassed, reports of parliamentary committees are being overlooked and nothing is being done for the masses,” Ramesh told reporters here on Thursday.

The rally is to be addressed by former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Ramesh said Congress leaders and workers will assemble at Jantar Mantar here and after the leaders finished addressing the rally they will all march to parliament house.

He said Modi government has been “systematically” attacking country’s democracy.
