"In the battle of Kurukshetra, the Kauravas were powerful, extremely well organized and arrogant".

On Saturday, at the Congress Plenary Session, Gandhi had said that the Modi government is drunk with power while referring to the Gujarat fake encounter case in which BJP chief Amit Shah was arrested and later discharged.

Party president Rahul Gandhi, in his speech at the Congress plenary session, underlined the growing Chinese presence in India's neighbourhood and made a specific mention of the Doklam plateau near Bhutan where China has built military infrastructure. He also described BJP chief Amit Shah as a murder accused-he has been acquitted by a CBI court, but Rahul said such a person could never head the Congress.

"Modi stands for collusion between India's biggest crony capitalists and India's prime minister", he said. Gandhi has asserted that the country was "fatigued" and only his party could show the way forward. "And he must be thinking that they will not be able to go through in 2019", Rahul said. However, for that the organisation needs to change. "He should first apologise for all that", Javadekar said. But millions of youth face unemployment. People have no jobs. Continuing his tirade against the Prime Minister, Rahul charged Prime Minister Modi of diverting the attention of the public from the "real issues" from GST to even doing yoga at India Gate.

"The BJP Government has messed up the economy". They tell the Tamils to change your handsome language, they tell people of north-east we don't like what you eat, tell women to dress properly.

"They told Gauri Lankesh and Kalburgi, question us and you will die".

In order to do long-term fix of the party's image - characterised by nepotism and clinging to party posts - the Congress president said his "first task" would be to knock down barriers between leaders and workers, and to promote workers lower down the order.

Union Minister for Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad also slammed the Congress president for his remarks on Supreme Court judges. "My aim is to present an Indian vision to the world", the Congress President said. Aiming to woo the youth, Rahul Gandhi said that he would also break the wall between country's political system and youth.

"Every single state in this country has a list of our workers who have died for this country".
