“You think democracy is declining. Youth is unemployed, farmers are protesting, CAA is there. The question is what is India? People from different cultures, languages, religions make up India. We can’t ask the people of Assam to forget their culture, history and language if they come to Delhi. The day we say this, the idea of India ends . One force, born in Nagpur, trying to control the whole country.” Gandhi said.
He also said that the BJP and RSS were trying to control the country from RSS headquarters in Nagpur.
