Failure is not forever if principles remain intact, says Sonia
New Delhi: In her first public meeting after grand fiasco of the Congress party in recent Assembly elections, party president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday said no failure could last forever if the principles were not kicked aside.
The party chief was addressing a youth Congress function to mark the 25’the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in New Delhi.
“Success achieved by abandoning basic principles lasts for a short period of time. Likewise, no failure can last forever if the principles remain intact,” said Sonia.
“Now, the only option left is to hand the power over to the youth. Some people had objections when I talked about ‘major surgery’. I was even told that I may lose my job for seeking the surgery but, I still say that the power should go to the hands of youth,” said the All India Congress Committee general secretary Digvijaya Singh.
Singh also attacked the Bhartiya Janata Party saying it always followed the British ‘divide and rule’ policy and claimed to be nationalist.
