Congress Will Win Elections in All Five States: Rahul

Rahul Gandhi said the BJP and the RSS were trying to spread an authoritarian and centralised system in the country

AIZAWL: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that the Congress will win the Assembly elections in five states — Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Mizoram.

He also asserted that the opposition I.N.D.I.A. represents 60 per cent of the country, more than the BJP does.

Addressing reporters in Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, Gandhi said the opposition I.N.D.I.A. will defend the “idea of India” by protecting its values, constitutional framework and freedom of people irrespective of religion or culture to express themselves and live in harmony.

Lashing out at the BJP and its ideological parent RSS, Gandhi said, “Their vision for our nation is different from ours. We believe in decentralisation whereas the BJP believes that all decisions should be taken in Delhi.”

He said Congress helped lay the foundation of India and that the grand old party has a record of defending that foundation, he accused the BJP of attempting to capture the entire institutional framework of the nation.
