At the start of the congressional campaign in Goa, where assembly elections are scheduled for early next year, party leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday emphasized that the assurances his party makes in his election manifesto are not just a commitment but a “guarantee”.

Addressing members of the fishermen community in South Goa after arriving in the state for his day-long visit, he also claimed that while the BJP indulges in hatred and divides the people, the Congress is spreading love and affection as it believes in uniting and moving people forward.

“I want to make clear what is the difference between the BJP and the Congress. The Congress believes in uniting and moving the people of India forward. For us, every Indian has the right to get the space he needs.”

He said the response of the Congress to the hate being spread by the BJP is love and affection. He added, “Wherever they spread anger, hatred and division, we spread love and affection.”
