BJP is spreading untruths but UPA will prevail: Sonia Gandhi

Congress president Sonia Gandhi lashed out at the BJP for disrupting Parliament and requested the opposition parties to stand together to pass the Food Security Bill. She also praised Manmohan Singh for performing his duties in the face of heavy criticism.

"I cannot hide my deep sense of disappointment at the way the opposition has prevented Parliament to function," she said during a function to celebrate UPA-II's fourth anniversary on Wednesday.

She said, "We still have time to fulfill our duties to our people. I make fervent plea to the NDA and other parties to let us come together to pass the Food Security Bill and other bills."

Gandhi praised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and said, "The prime minister has been carrying out his duties in the face of much hostility. We are all together and we stand by him."

Gandhi also slammed the BJP saying that it has been trying to break people's trust in the government by spreading 'untruth'. "There has been deliberate effort to spread misinformation and untruth... We will not be deterred by the drummed up noise created around us."
