Addressing a public rally from his car in Erode, Tamil Nadu, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said he has come to the state to listen to the people of Tamil Nadu, their grievances, not to tell them his 'Mann ki Baat'.

"The people of Tamil Nadu are struggling because of the policies of the BJP and also the policies of the state government. I have come here to help. You are all aware of the relationship that my family shares with the state, the love that Indira ji, my father received from this state. I am indebted to you for all this love and affection," Rahul said during the roadshow while he was headed to interact with the weaver community of the state at Odanilai.
