Rahul Gandhi took a dig at Saffron BJP

Rahul Gandhi

The process of his election as the new Congress chief was completed after the Central Election Authority President Mullapally Ramachandran handed over the Certificate of Election to Rahul Gandhi in a ceremony at 24, Akbar Road, housing the party headquarters. They light the fires, we diffuse. "They (BJP) crush voices but we allow them to speak, they defame, we respect and defend", added Gandhi. "This is the difference between them and us", he said.

With this, 47 year old Rahul Gandhi becomes the sixth leader from the Nehru-Gandhi family to occupy the top post in the party.

They get angry, we love. Once fire breaks out it is hard to douse it.

Gandhi succeeds his mother, Sonia Gandhi, who led the party for the last 19 years. "We are now being compelled to imagine that businesses can be built without harmony that only one man himself is the voice of reason, and that expertise, experience and knowledge can be cast aside for personal glory", Rahul Gandhi said. He said that in the general election of 2019, Congress party will win under the leadership of Rahul and will form government in the Center. "You all are mine", he told them.

# We represented and worked for the development of every class of the society.




The Janata Dal-United (JD-U), an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Bihar, on Saturday described the new Congress President Rahul Gandhi as "Vanshvad Ka Naya Avatar" (new incarnation of dynasty politics) and said there is hardly anything new about it. "They might control the structures of power, the machinery of silence and fear, but we in the Congress, we are the bastion of the people", he said, adding that it is in this service that his idealism and hope for politics always rest.

Sonia Gandhi, whose almost two-decade long reign as president ends today, watched as her son received an election certificate - that was the precise moment when Rahul Gandhi became the leader of the party.

"We fight for those who can not fight alone".

Attacking the BJP, he said, "these regressive forces" don't win because they are right, they do not win because they stand on the side of what is correct, "they win because they are powerful".
