Sonia Gandhi denounces India’s decision to skip the UN vote on the Israel-Hamas war
Sonia Gandhi, the former chief, said on Monday that the Congress is “strongly opposed” to India’s refusal to vote on the recent UN resolution on the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Sonia Gandhi went on to add that even though her party had strongly denounced Hamas’s attacks, the tragedy is made worse by the Israeli state’s present emphasis on retaliating against a population that is, for the most part, defenceless and innocent. She continued by saying that direct negotiations for a sovereign, independent state have long been a party platform item.
“The vicious attacks on Israel diminished us all together. Israel’s disproportionate and equally brutal response now diminishes all of us. How many more people must die before our society’s conscience is awakened?

Only in the event that states possessing the authority to formulate policies rule the globe
She said that the Congress has never wavered in its unwavering belief that both Israelis and Palestinians have a right to live in a just peace. We are appreciative of the Israelites’ friendship. The horrific history of the Palestinian people’s years-long forced exile from their ancestral homeland and the denial of their fundamental right to a life of dignity and respect, however, should not be disregarded.
We express our gratitude to the Israelites for their friendship. However, this does not absolve us of the terrible history of the Palestinian people’s years-long forced exile from their ancestral homeland and the denial of their basic right to a life of respect and dignity, she stated
The entire region is being devastated by the truly inhumane nature of the war. The war has crippled the entire region. Women, Children and men are facing the atrocities of it. She went on to say that there is not any food or fresh water in the area. she
