This resistance arises because my being is permeated with an Indian idea that is and has always been in direct conflict with theirs. This is not a new battle; it has been waged on our soil for thousands of years. Where they see differences, I see similarity. Where they see hatred, I see love. What they fear, I embrace, Rahul Gandhi wrote in his statement. The Congress were brought down by BJP in the Lok Sabha elections held earlier this year.
