Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday targeted the BJP and RSS saying they have systematically attacked institutions in the country to erase democracy. Speaking at VOC College in Tamil Nadu's Thoothukudi, the Wayanad MP said that democracy is dead in India. Gandhi added that democracy doesn't die with a bang, rather it dies slowly and the BJP/RSS have killed the Indian democracy over the last six years.
"Over last 6 years, there has been systematic attack on elected institutions & free press that hold the nation together. Democracy doesn't die with a bang, it dies slowly. RSS has destroyed the institutional balance," Gandhi said.
