Uttar Pradesh/Nagpur: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi sounded the poll bugle in Uttar Pradesh today, walking up and down a 200-metre ramp in Ramabai Stadium in Lucknow addressing party workers. The move, say reports is to present himself as a rockstar much as the PM does during his visits abroad, while addressing the India diaspora.
Highlights of what the Congress veep said.
27 saal UP behaal, anek parties UP ko todne main lagi hain. Hum chahate hain ki UP fir pehle no pe jaaye, aur hum leke jaaenge.
The Congress is fighting to change the lives of the people of UP. We are fighting to form the Govt in UP. We are not here to merely increase seats.
We made Sheila Dikshit-ji the CM candidate of UP because we want her to fight for women.
Earlier Modi-ji snatched farmers’ lands, now it’s dal from your plates.
Modi-ji promised bullet trains, tickets will be not less than Rs 15000.
Only Modi-ji and his suited booted friends will travel in it.
If the Congress Party stands together, if we fight for our ideology and give voice to the workers then no Party can defeat us.
