“People of India have saved Constitution, democracy”: Rahul Gandhi


Hailing the Lok Sabha election results in 2024, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday thanked the people of Wayanad and Raebareli for his resounding victory and emphasized that their support had upheld the Constitution and democracy in the country.

“Thank you very much to the people of Wayanad and Raebareli for giving me immense support and making me win with a huge majority. If it were in my control, I would have liked to remain an MP from both places,” said Rahul Gandhi during a press conference in the national capital on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi secured a third term, but the BJP fell short of the 272 majority mark, relying on the support of other parties in his coalition – JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar and TDP’s chief Chandrababu Naidu – falling 32 seats short of the expected landslide victory of ‘400 paar’.

“This election results are ‘janta ka result’. This is the victory of people and the democracy. We were saying that the fight is Modi vs the people. In the 18th Lok Sabha election, we humbly accept the result. People have not given a full majority to any party. BJP asked to vote for one person, the mandate has gone against Modi. It is his political and moral loss. The person who sought votes on his name, it’s a huge loss for him,” said Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge.

Rahul Gandhi secured victory in Raebareli by defeating BJP’s Dinesh Pratap Singh by a margin of 3,90,030 votes, aiming to protect the party’s stronghold in the state after losing Amethi in 2019.

“This election was a fight to save India’s democracy and constitution. It was a fight against unemployment, inflation and the economic crisis. The great people of the country recognized their issues and supported INDIA alliance. Many congratulations and thanks to all the alliance partners, all the Congress workers and the great people of the country,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on social media platform X.
