When I faced abuse… What did Rahul Gandhi say in his letter to the people of Wayanad?

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday wrote an emotional letter to the people of Wayanad, saying that while he faced daily abuse, their (Wayanadites') unconditional love protected him. Rahul had won from Kerala's Wayanad and Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli Lok Sabha constituencies and had to vacate one of the seats within 14 days of the Lok Sabha results on June 4. He left the Wayanad seat and his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi will contest from there in the upcoming by-election.

Rahul has written in the letter, “I was a stranger to you and yet you believed in me. You embraced me with immense love and affection. It did not matter which political party you supported, which community you belonged to, or which religion you followed, or which language you spoke.”

When I faced daily abuse, your unconditional love protected me. You gave me shelter, you were my home and my family. Not for a moment did I feel that you doubted me.

Rahul Gandhi, Congress MP

The Congress leader said that if the public gives a chance to his sister Priyanka Gandhi, she will represent Wayanad. Rahul expressed confidence that Priyanka will do a great job as an MP. After a meeting in New Delhi, Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge had said on June 17 that Rahul will keep the Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh and vacate the Wayanad seat from where his sister Priyanka will contest the elections.

Rahul also said in his letter written on Sunday that he cannot forget the bravery, beauty and confidence with which the girls translate his speeches in front of thousands of people.
