Congress plans to celebrate golden jubilee of Bangladesh War

The Congress is planning to organise district-level programmes to kick off the golden jubilee celebrations of the from mid July, a source said on Sunday.

The party had planned grassroot level meets across 650 districts from May 1 to celebrate an occasion considered to be one of finest moments of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Politically, it is meant to be effective counter to BJP’s aggressive nationalism plank by reminding the new generation that Ms. Gandhi was the person who managed to break up Pakistan.

The party’s plan got derailed because of the spike in the number of COVID-19 case in the second wave.
