At the same time, they realize that BJP Govt is looting them to recover the losses it has caused to the Country’ economy by misrule and mismanagement of things since the day one, as a result, there is a restlessness across the country. Every section of the society including farmers, youth, students, employees are up in arms due to wrong policies of BJP and this is the reason Congress party under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi has launched nationwide agitation against the wrong policies of the BJP led NDA Govt at the Centre.
