“This is a very important election. This election is to save the country’s democracy and Constitution. This election is being fought on issues like unemployment, inflation, and attacks on constitutional institutions. You have to play your role in this fight,” she said in her statement.

“Every single vote of yours will create employment, reduce inflation, empower women and build an equitable and equal India in a golden future,” Gandhi said, underlining the pressing issues the Congress has been flagging in its electoral campaign for the Lok Sabha polls.

“I appeal to you to ensure that the candidates of Congress and INDIA bloc alliance win with a huge margin in all the seven seats of Delhi,” Gandhi said.

Gandhi, who shifted to the Rajya Sabha after serving the Lok Sabha for 25 years, has taken part in one rally in Rae Bareli to campaign for the party.
