Speaking at the event, Azharuddin congratulated the people of Karnataka for imposing their faith in the Congress party. “If you expect people to vote for you at the end of the day you need to tell them what the party is doing because people are sick of hearing that Congress in 70 years have not done anything, whatever development we have seen in India and now is done by the congress party right from independence.”
In his address, Pitroda applauded the victory and commended the people of Karnataka for ensuring his party’s victory and credited all the congress workers, leaders at the state level for the historic win. He emphasized that the victory will be the beginning of the rise of the party, which will regain its glory and win the 2024 parliamentary elections. He informed the gathering of the forthcoming visit of former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and invited attendees to the event to support his cause.
