"We will stand against such ideology and defeat the BJP in 2019 general elections", Gandhi told reporters.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also lashed out at the Congress after a photograph appeared in which Congress leaders were seen eating before the start of a nationwide fast against the alleged communalism and non-functioning of Parliament.

"The entire country knows that PM Modi is anti-Dalit, it is not a secret". But about three hours before the start of the fast in the Capital, leaders of the Delhi party unit, including Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ajay Maken, were caught on camera having a heavy-duty breakfast of chhole bhature, embarrassing AICC managers.

President Trump lashed out at Amazon on Twitter a day after an Axios report said he planned to "go after" the retail giant. The stock, as of last trade, has shown weekly return of -10.53%, which was maintained at -7.21% in 1-month period.

The party also found fault with the presence of controversial leaders like Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar - who were accused of involvement in anti-Sikh riots - at the Congress' protest saying it exposed the party's "real violent" face at a time it is fasting for communal harmony.

Gandhi also alleged that the atmosphere created in the country was because of the BJP's ideology "to divide the country and crush Dalits, crush tribals and minorities". "Dalits, farmers of this country will not forgive you for playing this cruel joke", Sambit Patra said.

Delhi BJP leader Harish Khurana alleged that the Congress leaders were eating to their heart's content to prep for their daylong fast.

"Fast was to begin at 10:30 am. we went for breakfast around 8 am", said Congress leader Arvinder Singh Lovely.

"The Congress has fallen into its own trap". It is Congress which is dividing communities including Dalits and practicing dynasty rule, while BJP stands for development and protection of democracy, " he said. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives.

Taking a dig at Gandhi over his attack on the Modi government over Dalit issues, Patra asked if he had abstained even from one meal when anti-Dalit violence had happened in places like Mirchpur, Gohana and Jhajjar when the Congress was in power. While Ambedkar was equally committed to protect Muslims, the Nehru government did not do much to protect Dalits and tribals, they said quoting from the letter. "We won't allow the politics of hatred and division aimed at garnering votes to succeed", Surjewala told reporters.

Meanwhile, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) mocked the Congress fast accusing the party of playing a "joke" on Dalits with its "farce of a fast" and said its leaders claim of bringing a change but can not abstain from one meal.
