Congress President and UPA Chairperson visited Malda in West Bengal to attend the function for laying foundation stone of a Technical institute named after late Congress leader ABA Ghani Khan Choudhury. "Economic and social development of the nation should go hand in hand for which we need to fight communal forces strongly" said Sonia Gandhi. "We need a society which is secular, democratic and live in harmony. These are the basics of social, financial and inclusive development. We need to fight the communal and divisive ideologies. We are a secular democratic nation and that is our identity. The Congress party is committed to maintain the secular fabric of the country" she added.
