    Hitting out at Prime Minister Modi, she questioned what happened to his "Na khaoonga, na khane doonga" (will not engage in corruption myself, nor allow others) slogan.

    She charged the government with muzzling dissenting voices, weakening institutions and dividing communities eyeing poll gains.

    "Judiciary is passing through an unprecedented crisis. Media can't play its role, it is being stopped from doing so...It is a sensitive phase we need to take seriously...We will fight this on behalf of the people," she told the gathering.
