Launching an all-out attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Narendra Modi government, Sonia Gandhi today said she would work with like-minded political parties to ensure its defeat in the next general elections.

Addressing the Congress Parliamentary Party, of which she is the chairperson, Gandhi alleged that the government was orchestrating violence against minorities to polarise society for narrow political gains.

This would be seen in Karnataka too, which goes to the polls in a few months, she said.

Gandhi told Members of Parliament belonging to the Congress Party to work with dedication, loyalty and enthusiasm with Rahul Gandhi to strengthen the party. She added that Rahul was her boss too.

"We have elected a new Congress President and on your behalf and on my own, I wish him all the very best. He is now my boss too - let there be no doubt about that - and I know that all of you will work with him with the same dedication, loyalty and enthusiasm as you did with me." - Sonia Gandhi, Former President, Congress

"I am confident that we will work cohesively under his leadership to revive our party's fortunes. That process has begun," she said.

Gandhi also dubbed the Modi government as one not in sync with reality.
