The Congress President started his addressing by emphasising on the importance of selecting Hyderabad as the venue for the CWC meet.

"The first meeting of the CWC, constituted in August 2023, is being held at Hyderabad on a historic occasion. On 17 September 1948, 13 months after India's independence, Hyderabad also achieved freedom. I want to congratulate my friends from Telangana for this feat," Kharge said.

"Incidents like Manipur and Nuh tarnish the image of modern, progressive, and secular India," Kharge said.
"The Congress has held three historic conventions in Hyderabad in 153, 1968, and 2006. I also want to pay my tributes to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel who worked closely for the liberation of Hyderabad."

On Ethnic and Communal Violence in Manipur and Nuh

While highlighting the ethnic conflict in Manipur recent spate of communal violence in Haryana's Nuh, Kharge said that such incidents 'tarnish the image of India'.

"The country is at crossroads today facing many internal challenges. The entire nation is witnessing the tragic events still unfolding in Manipur. Modi government allowed the fire of Manipur to reach Nuh in Haryana. These incidents tarnish the image of modern, progressive, and secular India," Kharge said.

As he alleged that the Modi government has 'failed to deliver' on all important fronts, Kharge appreciated Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra for its attempt to bridge this communal divide.

"Incidents like Manipur and Nuh tarnish the image of modern, progressive, and secular India," Kharge said.
"The 4,000 km long Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi saw participation of people from all backgrounds. The yatra strengthened the voice of the common man and spread the message of love and harmony."

On 'Failures' of the Modi Government and Coming Together of INDIA bloc Parties

In his speech, Kharge claimed that India, under the Modi government, is facing 'record unemployment' and the 'inequality gap is continuously deepening'.

"Our economy is in grave danger today. Inflation and rise in prices of all essential commodities has adversely affected the lives of the poor and common people. To add to the sorrows, a young country like ours is facing the grave challenge of record unemployment. The inequality gap is continuously deepening. On top of this, the Modi government is handing over the prized PSUs of the country built since independence to a few crony-capitalist friends," he alleged.

"Incidents like Manipur and Nuh tarnish the image of modern, progressive, and secular India," Kharge said.
Reiterating the Congress party's commitment to protect the Constitution of India, Kharge claimed that the ruling government is resorting to vindictive action against Opposition parties.

"Today 27 INDIA parties stand together on fundamental issues of importance. After three successful meetings, the INDIA Alliance is forging ahead to combat the anti-people and anti-democratic BJP Government. Perturbed at this development, the BJP Government is resorting to vindictive action against Opposition parties. We also strongly condemn the Government’s attempts to stifle opposition in Parliament and curtail public scrutiny in the Parliament," he added.
