Don't alienate middle class: Sonia

Don't alienate middle class: SoniaJaipur, Jan 18 : People were fed up with corruption, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi told party workers here Friday, noting an increasingly assertive middle class can't be allowed to be alienated from the political process.

"Aided by the tools of the modern world- television, social media, mobile phones and the internet, today's India is better informed and better equipped to communicate," said Gandhi while addressing the 'chintan shivir' here.

She said that the citizens were "rightly fed up with the levels of corruption" in public life at high levels as well as in their daily lives and that it was a phenomenon that "we must understand and continue to respond to".

"We cannot allow our growing, educated middle classes to be disillusioned and alienated from the political process," she added.

The Congress chief further said that the people of India were expecting much more from their political parties. (IANS)
