The government's focus is on stripping the country of an opposition, but the Congress will fight the government for the people.

He said as per the Udaipur declaration [of the Congress], the party posts will be filled and there will be social advisory Committee with particular attention to Schedules Caste, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes.
