He said, “The election was fought on key issues including demonetisation, farmer problems, Gabbar Singh Tax and corruption in Rafale. Narendra Modi used hatred in the campaign and we used love and I am confident love will win… ”
Rahul’s love plank has been overused in this election, largely by him Rahul himself while speaking of politics that the BJP and the Prime Minister indulge in- in his words ‘of hatred’.
Recently addressing a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Shujalpur, Rahul Gandhi reverted to PM Modi’s attack on his family and said he would “never hate Modi” as he believed the “PM can be defeated only with love”.
“I don’t hate Modi. Modiji, you can say whatever you want to. Hatred cannot overcome hatred. Modiji cannot be defeated with hatred, he can be defeated only with love,” Gandhi added.
“There is no hatred in the hearts of Congress workers. But there is hatred in the hearts of the BJP, RSS people and Modi. Our job is to end that hatred.”
The Congress President said, “They spew hatred for me, my father, grandmother and great grandfather. But I go and hug him. Get rid of hatred, work with love. You will benefit yourself.”
Meanwhile, he declined to comment on the number of seats the Congress could win in the election. “The people will decide that,” he said.
