DODA: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said he would help people of J&K to come out of the pain they suffer.
“I may not understand every pain of yours but as long as I am alive I will continue to help you out,” Rahul said at an election rally here organized jointly by National Conference and Congress as a part of campaigning for its candidate, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is contesting the parliamentary polls from Udhampur-Doda constituency. Rahul said he originally belongs to Kashmir. “I belong to J&K and my family roots are here. I have with me the love and trust of the people of J&K,” he said. “People of J&K know how to develop, they just need power and we will lead everyone with us,” he said.
Rahul claimed that Congress did “three great works in J&K.” According to him, Congress generated employment in J&K. He said that holding of Panchayat election was the second great work done and the third one was about women empowerment for which Congress government granted Rs 750 crore to the state government.
