Meira Kumar, opposition’s presidential candidate on Friday morning visited Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad to launch her campaign for the election. She spent around 40 minutes at the ashram along with Gujarat Congress leaders Bharatsinh Solanki and Shankersinh Vaghela. “My current fight is based on Gandhiji’s principles. I have come here to gain strength from these principles and help disseminate the same,” Kumar said.
“I wish from my heart that the most oppressed people of this region progress. This is what Gandhiji wished for, both for the nation and the world,” she added.
