“There Is No AAP On Ground In Gujarat, Congress Will Win Election”: Rahul Gandhi

Stressing that there is “massive” anti-incumbency against the BJP in Gujarat, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today said his party will win the upcoming assembly elections in the state. Taking a swipe at Kerjiwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Mr Gandhi said that the AAP has only created a buzz purely based on advertisements and has no support on the ground.

Addressing a press conference in Telangana during his Bharat Jodo Yatra, Mr Gandhi insisted that the Congress is a “solid party in Gujarat”.

The former Congress President also confidently declared that the Congress is fighting the Gujarat elections effectively and will win the polls.

“The AAP is only in the air. It has nothing on the ground. There is massive anti-incumbency. The media has created a buzz based on the advertisements given by AAP. The Congress party is a solid party in Gujarat and is going to win the election there,” the Gandhi scion said.

“The fight in India is between two ideologies. One which is seeking to divide the nation and the other is trying to bring the nation together. The line is very clear and it is important that the Opposition works together harmoniously to defeat the ideology of the RSS and the BJP,” he went on to add.

Attacking the BJP further, the Wayanad MP said: “One way of looking at the BJP is that it is a political organization. That is a rather superficial way of looking at the party. The BJP is actually an emotion that is very strong in the leadership of the RSS and the BJP. And that emotion at a superficial level is hatred. They preach the idea of hatred.”

“I have read about people like Savarkar and Golvalkar. And if you read a bit, it’s not hatred. It is fear. They are actually scared and that fear comes from hatred. The Congress is also an emotion. But it is the opposite is fear. It is the confrontation of fear,” he added.

The BJP will begin to collapse the “moment the Congress party begins to spread this idea of ‘confront your fear’, Mr Gandhi said, adding that “there is an element of institutional capture which they have done and the united opposition will reverse this”.

“I also feel that people who have played a role in this have realised that they can’t get away. There is a cost involved in capturing the Constitution of this country and trying to destroy the institutions of the country. And they will pay the price,” he added.
