Modi says Gandhi ji wanted to disband Congress, Arnab Goswami’s channel declares it ‘PM’s blog strike on Congress’


Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote a blog to commemorate the 89th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s famous Dandi March against the British. Modi, however, used the occasion to attack the Congress for forgetting the teachings of Gandhi adding that the iconic freedom fighter wanted to disband the Congress soon after India’s independence in 1947. Unable to hide its excitement, Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV anchors declared Modi’s write-up as his ‘blog strike on the Congress.’


He wrote, “Sadly, the anti-thesis of Gandhian thought is the Congress culture. Bapu said, “…through realisation of freedom of India I hope to realise and carry on the mission of brotherhood of man.” In many of his works, Gandhi Ji said that he does not believe in inequality and caste divisions. Sadly, the Congress has never hesitated from dividing society. The worst caste riots and anti-Dalit massacres happened under Congress rule.”

Modi went on to add that ‘Gandhi Ji had understood the Congress culture very well, which is why he wanted the Congress disbanded, especially after 1947.’ He added, “He (Gandhi) lamented, “I am sorry to have to say that many Congressmen have looked upon this item (Swaraj) as a mere political necessity and not as something indispensable.” He also added that Congress leaders are only busy making communal adjustments. In 1937 itself he said, “I would go to the length of giving the whole congress a decent burial, rather than put up with the corruption that is rampant”.”

Calling Gandhi an organisational man, Modi wrote that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, India’s first home minister, had planned ‘every minute aspect of the Dandi March, down to the last detail.’ He added, “Last month I was in Dandi, at the exact spot where Bapu lifted a handful of salt. A state-of-the-art museum has also come up there, which I urge you all to go see.”
