Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who filed his nomination from the Wayanad seat in Kerala on Thursday, said he has nothing against the Left and that his fight is only against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party.
“I understand that my brothers and sisters in CPM will now speak against me and attack me, but I am not going to say a word against the CPM in my entire campaign,” Rahul Gandhi told reporters after filing nomination papers.
Rahul Gandhi added that he has come to Kerala to send a message that India is one, be it north, south, east or west.
“My aim is to send a message, there is a feeling in South India that the way Centre, Modi ji and RSS are working its like an assault on culture and languages in South,” Rahul Gandhi said.
The Congress president, who was accompanied by his sister and leader Priyanka Gandhi, said his fight was only against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP.
