Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra shared an emotional note for her brother Rahul Gandhi following his victories in both constituencies he contested and the overall improvement in the party’s tally in the Lok Sabha elections. Praising Rahul, Priyanka highlighted that despite doubts about his conviction and the “overwhelming propaganda of lies” against him, Rahul never wavered and continued “fighting for truth.”

She described him as the “bravest of all,” noting that Rahul Gandhi fought with “love, truth, and kindness” and expressed her pride in him. She stated, “You kept standing, no matter what they said and did to you…you never backed down whatever the odds, never stopped believing however much they doubted your conviction, you never stopped fighting for the truth despite the overwhelming propaganda of lies they spread, and you never allowed anger and hatred to overcome you, even when they gifted it to you every day.”

Priyanka continued, “You fought with love, truth and kindness in your heart. Those who could not see you, see you now, but some of us have always seen and known you to be the bravest of all. Bhai @RahulGandhi, I am proud to be your sister.”

Rahul Gandhi contested from Rae Bareli and Wayanad, winning both by substantial margins. He won the Rae Bareli seat by defeating BJP’s Dinesh Pratap Singh with a margin of 3,90,030 votes, aiming to preserve the party’s stronghold in the state after his 2019 loss in Amethi. In Wayanad, which facilitated his entry into the Lok Sabha in 2019, he defeated Communist Party of India-Marxist candidate Annie Raja by 3,64,422 votes.

The 2024 Lok Sabha election counting took place on Tuesday. According to the Election Commission of India, the BJP secured 240 seats, significantly fewer than its 2019 count of 303. Meanwhile, Congress made notable gains, winning 99 seats. The INDIA bloc surpassed the 230-seat mark, presenting significant competition and defying predictions. Prime Minister Narendra Modi secured a third term, but the BJP will need to form a coalition with other parties, including JD (U) chief Nitish Kumar and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu.
