In the beginning, scores of Congress workers and local leaders accorded a grand welcome to Nath.

Nath acknowledges party workers and motivates them to work together. He told party workers that only five months are left before the elections and this time things were different.

“I am a Hindu but I am not stupid. We also have to be the protectors of the culture as BJP has made it a matter of political propaganda and it is being used on a political platform,” Nath said.

Launching a scratching attack on BJP, Nath said in 2018, the public voted for Congress, but BJP bring down our government by horse-trading. We could save our government if we want, but we never wanted to compromise with our principals, Nath said.
