Hailing TMC’s mega opposition rally in Kolkata, senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Saturday said that the rainbow alliance was aimed at defeating and forming a secular government at the Centre.
“Never before have we seen such vendetta politics... When Amit Shah did 100 rallies in Uttar Pradesh, no one questioned, but when RJD organised a rally, it got an Income Tax notice,” Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.
Abhishek Manu Singhvi was representing the Congress at the Brigade Parade Grounds, where leaders of all the opposition parties, except the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and the CPI(M)-led Left Front, are participating in the rally.

Congress is an ally of the Lalu Prasad’s RJD in the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (Grand Alliance) in Bihar. Accusing the government of indulging in “cheap politics”, the Congress leader said the biggest beneficiary of vote division is the BJP.
“(Prime Minister) Narendra Modi makes fun of the opposition alliance, but his party made the most unethical alliance in Kashmir. What would he say about it?” Singhvi said.
