Promises not to say a word against CPM.
Wayanad: Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who filed his nomination from the Wayanad seat in Kerala on Thursday, said his fight is only against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party, not the Left Front in Kerala.
But in the constituency where he is a candidate, Modi nor his party, the BJP, has any presence. His main rival is a candidate from the Left Front.
“I understand that my brothers and sisters in CPM will now speak against me and attack me, but I am not going to say a word against the CPM in my entire campaign,” Rahul Gandhi told reporters just before he departed in a helicopter.
Rahul Gandhi added that he has come to Kerala to send a message that India is one, be it north, south, east or west.
“My aim is to send a message, there is a feeling in South India that the way Centre, Modi ji and RSS are working its like an assault on culture and languages in South,” Rahul Gandhi said.
