Rahul on Ramesh Bidhuri incident in Parliament
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also touched upon BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri incident in the Parliament, where the BJP MP hurled slurs against BSP MP and fellow Parliamentarian Danish Ali. "What you are seeing today, you know this gentleman Mr. Bidhuri and then suddenly this Mr. Nishikant Dubey, this is all the BJP trying to distract from the caste census. They know that the caste census is a fundamental thing that the people of India want and they don't want to have that discussion," said Rahul Gandhi.
Controlling the narrative in poll bound state: Rahul
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Congress party was controlling the narrative in Telangana, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. "The BJP is not even in the narrative now it's gone. In fact, the BJP party is decimated, it's over in Telangana," said Rahul. "No matter what the BJP tries to do, they are not capturing the narrative anymore. We are also adapting and learning," said the Congress leader.
He also mentioned about the party's success in Karnataka assembly elections this year and said, "We learned a very important lesson in Karnataka, and the lesson was that the BJP wins elections by distracting and not allowing us to construct our narrative. And so what we did in Karnataka, we fought the election in a way where the BJP could not define the narrative."
On Opposition Unity
Rahul Gandhi also insisted that the Opposition was ready for a fight in 2024 and said, "Don't think the Opposition is not capable of adapting. We are adapting, working together and we are 60 percent of the country's population. The BJP is in for a surprise in 2024," said Rahul Gandhi.
