Communal violence created deliberately: Sonia
Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 12: Congress chief Sonia Gandhi Tuesday attacked the Narendra Modi government, saying the communal violence that broke out recently in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra was "created deliberately to divide our society".

"Communal violence took place in Uttar Pradesh and ... in Maharashtra also. These indeed are created deliberately to divide our society along religious lines, so we should do our bit to create a pluralistic society," said Gandhi, while addressing party leaders at the state Congress headquarters in the capital city.

Gandhi arrived in the city around noon and after inaugurating the 16th anniversary celebrations of the state-run women's empowerment programme 'Kudumbashree' she will return to Delhi Tuesday afternoon.

She also criticised the Modi government for its attitude towards the happenings at Gaza.

"In the Lok Sabha, we were unable to initiate a discussion, but in the Rajya Sabha we were able to take up the issue for discussion. We have always expressed our solidarity with the Palestinians. At the moment, the guns there have fallen silent," said Gandhi.
