New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday asked the party workers to “leave all work” except the public welfare as the “system” has failed.
“The system has failed so public welfare should be done. In this crisis responsible citizens are needed ,I will appeal to Congress colleagues to leave all political work and work to help the people of the country as this is the Congress’s dharma,” he tweeted in Hindi.
Rahul Gandhi’s criticism comes after many media houses aired reports of “system failure” while the Congress has been alleging that it’s “Prime Minister’s failure”.
