Indira Ji was profoundly sensitive towards India's cultural traditions: Sonia Gandhi

"Today we see rising intolerance, rising violence. A skewed vision of our history and society is being imposed along with falsehood and unscientific ideas. All this is the antithesis of liberal, secular and democratic foundations of our country. The fundamental assumption that guided our freedom struggle and inspired our country after independence is now being called into question," she said.
She said former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi consistently worked for national integration but "unlike those in the ruling establishment now, she did not equate unity with the uniformity".
"On the contrary, she was deeply conscious and proud of India's diversity," he added. 
Sonia Gandhi said that the former Prime Minister was profoundly sensitive towards India's many cultural traditions.
"She believed in accommodating, respecting and celebrating our diversity. She also recognized that without just economic and social policy that actively promoted equity and inclusiveness, India could not develop and prosper," the Congress president said. 
She said Indira Gandhi's vision of national integration was all-encompassing "helping the disadvantaged and ensuring that no section of the Indian society is excluded on the basis of caste or creed".
