Campaigning for the Congress in Maharashtra, party chief Rahul Gandhi addressed a public rally at Nagpur’s Kasturchand Park today. Gandhi told the crowd that unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi he did not believe in lying as lies get caught. He also said that he was not in a hurry and that he is in politics for the long haul. “I want to build a long-standing relationship with you. I will not speak lies. Modi has grown old and is in a hurry. So he is telling lies,” Gandhi was quoted as saying by PTI.
Addressing the press after filing his nomination, Rahul Gandhi said, “I know the Congress and the CPM are locked in a fight in Kerala. This fight will go on. I understand that my brothers and sisters in CPM will fight me, attack me, but I will never say a word against them in my campaign. My motto is to send a message of unity and peace in South India.”
