However according to the Congress President, the rich tradition of unity in diversity in India is endangered due to rise of communal forces in the country. Sonia Gandhi said, “It is extremely important for everyone to come together and fight to safeguard the unity and integrity of our nation”.

It was very clearly a dig at the ruling BJP led NDA government. Many intellectuals have protested and even given away their awards voicing against the ‘growing intolerance’ in the country.
