Congress party on Monday staged a protest at Raj Ghat, as part of a countrywide fast of the party, to protest against the Bharatiya Janata Party government and non-functioning of the Parliament.

Maharashtra Congress leaders who observed the day-long fast at Azad Maidan said, "Maharashtra Congress says "Peace and harmony has been embodied in the soul of our country and the responsibility to uphold it lies with all of us". Talking about the picture, the Delhi Congress leader said, "Photograph is of before 8 am, this is symbolic fast from 10.30 am to 4.30pm, it is not an indefinite hunger strike".

Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi "anti-Dalit", Rahul Gandhi said the grand old party (Indian National Congress) will defeat the BJP-led NDA in the 2019 general election.

ABJPleader had tweeted a picture of some Congress leaders, including Ajay Maken and Arvinder Singh Lovely, eating breakfast at a restaurant before the day-long event.

The protest organised by the Congress witnessed its first controversy when party leaders Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler, both accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, arrived at Rajghat. "But we will not let that happen and will continue to raise concerns of the people", Maken told Mail Today. This is what is wrong with these (BJP) people. "We will stand against such ideology and defeat the BJP in 2019 general elections", Gandhi told reporters. Speaking on the picture of Congress leaders eating before fast, BJP-SAD Delhi MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa said' Inki maansikta hi khaane ki hai, ye bhooke nahi reh sakte' (It shows their mentality that they can't live without food).

"This is a fight for the ideology and values which India represents". "The "oppressive ideology" followed by the BJP and the RSS did not allow them to respect the architect of the Constitution, B.R. Ambedkar", Pynjab congress said in a message posted on Twitter.

He said the government had divided the country on religious lines and was now trying to divide it between Dalit and non-Dalits. "It is very risky for social fabric of the country", said the party.

He alleged that those who talk about such issues are taking sides with those who want to divide society. "We are fighting for you as well".

He said certain "conspirators" of the BJP were trying to "belittle" the large idea of pluralism, inclusiveness, mutual brotherhood and mutual co-habitation, which is symbolic of the very essence of India.
