Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi Lauds Modi Govt’s stance on Russia-Ukraine; Raises Concerns Over India’s Democracy

Rahul Gandhi expressed concerns about threats to India's democratic institutions during his European tour and backed the Modi government's stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Rahul Gandhi: On Friday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi voiced alarm over what he described as an attack on India’s democratic institutions, expressing worries within European Union (EU) circles about efforts to suppress the nation’s democratic institutions. However, he backed the stance taken by Modi Govt’s stand on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.

During a press briefing in Brussels as part of his European tour that commenced in Belgium, Rahul Gandhi engaged with reporters and discussed various subjects, including the Russia-Ukraine conflict, asserting that the Opposition aligns with the government’s existing stance on the matter.

Commenting on India hosting the G20 Summit, Gandhi expressed a positive view, highlighting the absence of an invitation for Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge as indicative of a government perspective that, in his opinion, undervalues the leader representing a significant portion of India’s population, approximately 60 percent. He said, “There is an increase in discrimination and violence in India and there is a full-scale assault on the democratic institutions of our country, that everybody knows.”

The BJP has previously labeled Gandhi as the “present day Mir Jafar of Indian politics,” accusing him of seeking foreign assistance to gain power in India. The ruling party has also criticised Gandhi for allegedly insulting and tarnishing India’s image through his remarks abroad, asserting that he does not have the authority to make such statements on behalf of the people.

Gandhi mentioned that he had “fruitful” discussions with parliamentarians and members of the diaspora as he commenced his European tour, which is part of a broader initiative aimed at promoting the Opposition’s vision on a global scale. He said, “We discussed with the parliamentarians across the board the relationship between India and Europe, the changing globe, transition into a new sort of energy paradigm, into a new mobility paradigm… we were giving them a sense of the type of challenges India’s facing – economic challenges, other challenges. The general sort of attack on the democratic institutions.”

Furthermore, he stated that the opposition parties in India hold a similar perspective to the government regarding the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. He emphasised that India’s relationship with Russia plays a role in this alignment and suggested that the Opposition is unlikely to differ from the government’s position on the conflict. He said, “think the Opposition, by and large, would agree with India’s current position on the conflict (between Russia and Ukraine). We have a relationship with Russia. I don’t think the Opposition would have a different position than what the Government is currently proposing.”
