“The gist of the meeting was that we have to defend the democracy and the institutions of this country. We have to defend the future of this country. So, we are coming together. All the opposition forces are going to work together to defend India,” Gandhi said after the meeting.
When questioned about the history of the animosity between the two parties, Rahul said, “We have had a past. But both of us agreed that we are not going to get into the past. We are going to talk about the present and the future because it is critical for our country. We have agreed that the principal idea here is to defeat the BJP and to defend democracy and the institutions of this country. All other ideas will be discussed later.”
