UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi launched a spirited election campaign in Haryana on Sunday. She addressed two well-attended rallies in Mewat and Jind districts, inaugurated the first phase of a major drinking water project at Kondal village and laid the foundation stone for a women’s medical college in Sonepat.

“Our work is before you and so are the hollow slogans and promises of our opponents,” she said at her rally in Kondal village in Mewat district, 90 km from Faridabad. “We hope that you will take the right decision when election time comes.”

“No country or society can progress unless every citizen is involved in the partnership for development. Unfortunately, in our country, there are some people who are trying to divide our society for their political purpose,” she added.

Repeatedly referring to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Sonia sent out the clear message that he would lead the country again if the UPA is voted back to power. She stressed the UPA government’s concern for the minorities and the poor.

“We took the historic step of waiving loans for farmers,” she said.

Addressing another rally at Uchana in Jind district Sonia referred to the Mumbai terror attacks and reiterated that India’s patience should not be mistaken for weakness.

“We have the capacity to give a fitting reply to the forces behind such actions,” she said.

She noted that several youth from Haryana had been part of the commando unit that took on the Mumbai terrorists.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who also attended the rally, assured the Congress president that all the 10 Lok Sabha seats from Haryana would go to the party.
