During a mega road show in Wayanad, Kerala on Tuesday Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that 4 years ago I came here and became MP from here. It was different for me to campaign here. I am not from Kerala, but your love made me feel that I am your brother, your son.
Before this, Priyanka Gandhi said that I am happy to be here. It is a very emotional visit when I have come to Wayanad with my brother. Yesterday I was packing his furniture from his house. He will stay with his mother until a new place is found. A few years ago I also saw the same time when I had to change the house. My children and husband helped me. But my brother has neither children nor family.
I said that we had to go to Wayanad tomorrow. I am not good at giving speech, English is also not good. Then he said that Wayanad is our family, just talk to them like our family. So today I have come to talk to my family.
You know that he is a truthful man, who speaks the truth without fear. People want to silence him, he still speaks. You know that he always listens to you, talks to you and stands by your side to help you. You elected him but a court in Surat sentenced him to 2 years imprisonment, after which his membership of Parliament was terminated.
The whole government is saving one person,
the country’s ministers, MPs and PM are troubling a citizen who is asking questions because they don’t have answers to Rahul’s questions. The whole government is engaged in saving one person whose name is Gautam Adani. What happened to my brother shows the kind of dictatorship in our country. It is trying to sve its business man friend. The whole government is saving one person who is earning crores of rupees daily, but they are not saving the farmers who are not able to earn even a few rupees, they are dying of hunger.
Our soldiers are standing at the border to lay down their lives, but Adani is giving defense related projects to China. Our PM protects Adani but is not helping the people of India. They are trying to silence my brother, but you people of Wayanad have to be his voice.
Before this, Rahul Gandhi held a roadshow in Kalpetta, Wayanad. Many senior leaders of the party including Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi were present in this.
