Targeting BJP, Gandhi said, "the whole country is asking where is 'Sabka Saath and Sabka Vikas? Where is the black money? Where is employment today? Who has it?".
"Today the atmosphere is such that whenever they feel like they impose an Article, revoke an Article, change the status of a state. Whenever they feel like, they revoke President's Rule and pass Bills without debate," she said.
"We are ready to sacrifice anything for democracy, and Constitution. Congress has always fought for the rights of the people. We will fight till our last breath for our saving our nation and Constitution," Sonia Gandhi said addressing the crowds.
The protest rally comes amid an economic slowdown, unemployment, distress in the farm and industrial sectors, and raging protests across Assam and the northeast over the Citizenship Amendment Act.
