Deoli (Rajasthan) : The Congress which suffered a humiliating and crushing defeat in the last December’s Assembly election is trying to pull itself from gloom and despair.

Rahul, Gandhi, the Congress vice president was enthused with the large gathering of the party workers at Deoli, small town in Tonk district whom he addressed for seven minutes.

This was the party’s first mass rally after the party could win just 22 seats in the House of 200. Rahul Gandhi’s address was more to boost the morale of the cadre

Rahul said on Monday that his party would go all out to fight the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Rahul said, “The new class of 70 crore people, who are above the poverty line but below the level of middle class, has been created in the last ten years and it includes security guards, taxi drivers etc.” We want to do politics and run the government for those who run the country on a daily basis, namely chowkidars, taxi drivers, auto drivers and so on. We want their children study in the IITs’ hitting out at the BJP, Rahul said, “The BJP just want to benefit the rich if they come to power. But we want to help the downtrodden,” adding, “We will go on the road, will go to villages, we will go to streets and we will fight the BJP government in Rajasthan.”

Playing the youth card and pointing at the young PCC president Sachin Pilot, he said, “After we lost the Assembly elections we made a youth as PCC president to represent your aspirations. We will put up new faces and young faces in Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha,” he said.
