Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s message on the occasion of 137th Congress Foundation Day :
Dear Party colleagues and Party workers, 136 years ago today The Indian National Congress was founded and established. Over the decades it has confrontedseveral challenges and it has always demonstrated its resilience.
Today we rededicate ourselves to the ideals values and principles of our organization that has been shaped, guided and inspired by some of the greatest noblest and most selfless of Indians of the 20th century.
Divisive ideologies anchored in hate and prejudice and which had no role whatsoever to play in our freedom movement are now causing havoc on the secular fabric of our society.
They are rewriting history to give themselves a role they do not deserve they inflame passions instill fear and spread animosity. The finest tradition of our parliamentary democracy are being deliberately damaged. The Indian National Congress will fight these destructive forces with all its might.
Let there be no doubt on our steadfast resolve we have never and we will never compromise on our fundamental beliefs that are part of our glorious legacy. Electoral ups and downs are inevitable but what is enduring and lasting is our commitment to the service of all people of our diverse society.
On this occasion I send my greetings and good wishes to the millions of congressmen and women across the country and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy 2022. Jai Hind!
