Gandhi's first speech

In his first speech just four days before the polls, he said, "They are selling everything - Indian Oil, Air India, Hindustan Petroleum, railways and even Red Fort. They may even sell the Taj Mahal. If Made in India is implemented, two crore youth of the country will get jobs every year. But Narendra Modiji and Arvind Kejriwal are not interested in that. All they want to do is to make people fight against each other and grab power..Modi and the BJP may be benefitting from it, but Indians are not. If you want development and employment, you will have to erase hatred from the hearts of people."

He later joined Priyanka Gandhi for a joint rally in the evening and also said that the BJP suppresses people on the basis of religion.

"They (BJP) talk about the Hindu dharm, they talk about Islam, they talk of Sikhism. They have no knowledge of religions. In Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism-- where is it written that attack other people, suppress them?"

Rahul Gandhi also directed some remark towards AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying that he and the Prime Minister are both spreading hate in the society.

"Do not harbour any illusion. Go to any person and you will find nationalism in his blood irrespective of his religion or whether he is poor or rich. The person who makes 'deshbhakts' (patriots) fight among each other, can he be a deshbhakt?"
