Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) reflected the sentiments of the people and not just politicians and the entire nation was united against the BJP and its ideological patriarch RSS.

Speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Gandhi said, “The ‘Mahagathbandhan’ reflects the sentiment of not just politicians but also the people of India. The whole nation is united against RSS and BJP.

Congress party, along with several other regional parties, was making all-out efforts to stitch a grand alliance ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha election to fight against the BJP.

The Gandhi scion, who was also accompanied by Congress national general secretary Ashok Gehlot, attacked the Narendra Modi-led NDA government over the skyrocketing fuel prices.

“The petrol prices are burdening the common man, we had asked for fuel to be brought under GST but Modi government is not interested,” he said, adding that the profit that comes from the petrol and diesel sell was going directly into the pockets of few big businessmen.

The Congress president was on two-day Maharashtra visit. Earlier on Tuesday, he also appeared before a trial court in Bhiwandi in Thane district in the RSS defamation case.
