In a shocking comment coming as an admission from the Congress, the party questioned the poll panel and the judiciary of the country.

In a recent tweet by senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal, the lawyer-politician says that the party does not longer trust the poll panels and the judiciary.

Going about in a campaign mode in the post, Sibal has said the party does not trust almost every aspect of the country's democracy. From investigative agencies to the judiciary and even the electoral panel, he has targeted nearly every Constitutional body in the post.

Here's what the tweet by Sibal says:

The Twitter post says:

"From trust to mistrust ( 2014 to 2019 )

We no longer trust 

1) Government cooked statistics
2) Godi media
3) Promises of Modi
4) Enforcement agencies 
5) Justice delivery system 
6) Electoral machinery

Must move from mistrust to trust

2019

Modi hatao , Desh bachao"

Sibal had attended the London event of EVM hackathon in January which was organised by the Indian Journalists' Association (Europe).

As per sources, the party also plans to do away with the sedition law once it comes to power, said top sources.

Republic Media Network had accessed details of what is likely to be included in the manifesto of Congress for the Lok Sabha 2019 polls. As per top sources. the party had promised to do away with the sedition law if it is voted to power in its manifesto.
