”They (BJP) uses anger, we use love but one thing that I want to say is that this country belongs to everyone and whatever Congress will do will be for the benefit for all,” Rahul Gandhi said.
He will also later unveil a roadmap for the party in view of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Besides Rahul, UPA chairperson and former party chief Sonia Gandhi will also address the ongoing plenary session which is being held in the national capital.
