Rahul Gandhi files nomination from Wayanad

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that he, “along with every member of INDIA, will not rest until this battle” to “preserve our democracy” is won.

His statement came soon after he filed his nomination for the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 from Kerala’s Wayanad seat on Wednesday.

“This election is a fight for the soul of India; it is a fight to preserve our democracy from the forces of hatred, corruption, and injustice that seek to suppress the voice of Bharat Mata,” Gandhi posted on X (formerly know as Twitter).

He vowed, “I, along with every member of INDIA, will not rest until this battle is won. We will bring together every citizen from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and from Manipur to Mumbai to strengthen our Union of States.”

In a veiled attack at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Centre, Gandhi said, “On one side are the forces that want to destroy the democracy of this country and the Constitution of this country. And on the other side, there is a force that is protecting the Constitution and protecting the democratic nature of our country.”

“It’s very clear to all of you who is on which side. It is very clear who’s attacking the Constitution, who is attacking the democratic structure of this country,” Gandhi said.
