On Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s remarks that if BJP returns to power then it will put the Constitution and democracy in danger, Mandaviya said, “Congress itself is in danger. Congress’s existence is in danger, hence it is in despair.”
“For the last month, I have been doing an election campaign and we are continuously getting the enthusiasm and love of the public from all sections of society. The elderly lady is giving her blessings. I am getting continuous support from people here. Everyone joins the padayatra. I am seeing two things.
