Watch: Rahul Gandhi’s ‘useless & useful’ comment at PM Modi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has destroyed the institutional balance in the country by 'systematically attacking elected institutions and free press' for the last six years.

"A nation is a balance between its institutions, if that balance is disturbed then the nation is disturbed.

That is the central idea.

What are the institutions that make up the Indian nation?

There are elected institutions Lok Sabha, Vidhan Sabhas, Panchayats.

There is the judiciary, there is a supporting free press.

These institutions together, they hold the nation together in place.

What we have seen over the last six years, is a systematic attack on all these institutions.

Democracy does not die with a bang, it dies slowly and I am sad to tell you that democracy in India is dead.

It doesn't exist anymore.

It is dead because one organization, the RSS has combined with huge finances to penetrate and disturb and destroy our institutional balance.

That is what is happened," he said.

Rahul also took a jibe at PM Modi during the event.

Last night, Modi-Shah and BJP president JP Nadda, had a review meeting over Bengal. They know that we're ahead of them. In 2019 Lok Sabha polls, we were 3% ahead of BJP and this time it's increased to 6%. So, catch us if you can. 'Tourist Gang', despite big talks, are behind, that's why the mind games. We have won Nandigram. There is no other constituency; it's all BJP's mind games." said Derek O'Brien.

Mehbooba Mufti urges JandK youth to leave guns and start dialogue

Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (JKPDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on April12 appealed to the youth of Union Territory to leave weapons and start advocating for the welfare of JandK. Underlining the Bodo peace talks in Assam, she also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not initiating similar peace deals in Kashmir. "We ask our nation to give us back what was snatched away from us. If you want people of Jammu and Kashmir, you'll have to reinstate our honour. There's no other way. I say this to my country. Why does BJP get angry when I say it? Will I ask from Pakistan? If PM Narendra Modi appeals to militants of Assam to join the mainstream and leave their weapons, if talks are held with Boro (Bodo), then what is the difficulty in doing the same in Jammu and Kashmir? Why is there no option besides jail? How long will this injustice continue?," said PDP chief. She further said, "Nobody will understand the language of weapons. If you present your views peacefully, the world will listen to you. If you speak language of guns you'll be killed and you'll gain nothing. I appeal to Jammu and Kashmir youth to leave weapons and talk. They'll have to listen one day."
