Participating at a seminar on "Coalition Politics of NDA Government: Challenges Before the People" organised at the Gandhi Bhavan on the occasion, the PCC president, D Srinivas, said that the 28-party coalition of the NDA was more concerned about continuing in power rather than the welfare of the people.
The Congress was not against coalition Governments if the parties coincide on 70 per cent of their ideologies.
But in the case of the NDA coalition, the parties with diverse ideologies came together just to remain in power rather than to work for improving the rural economy and empower weaker sections.
Speaking on the occasion, former chairman of the National Minorities Commission, Sardar Ali Khan, expressed concern that the NDA coalition, comprising parties with different ideologies and pulling in different directions, was trying to negate the basic features of the Constitution. Former PCC president, M Satyanarayana Rao, former Chief Minister, N Bhaskara Rao, and other senior leaders were present.
