Gandhi stated, “There is currently an ideological battle going in India. It's sharply divided b/w two ideologies. One ideology is a unifying ideology which says that all people of the country should live together & shouldn't be dominated by one idea.”

While attacking the Modi government he said, “The other ideology represented by the current govt&PM where they believe that one idea should be imposed on our country. They have a particular view about the role of women in our society, different languages&cultures are inferior to one centralising culture and idea.” Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Why Captain Amarinder Singh Can be The Next Prime Minister of India.
