We come among the untouchables, at least someone drinks your tea. None of us even drinks tea. If you want to get sympathy by saying this, then people have become smart now.
On the other hand, while addressing the press conference, Kharge accused the BJP leaders of misleading the people. He said, 'Today I came to know that the people of the state are taking decisions in favor of the Congress in this election and the BJP knows this and that is why the national leaders of the BJP are roaming in different wards. Even after 27 years of their rule, the Prime Minister, the Prime Minister, the Home Minister and 5 Chief Ministers are coming here and giving inflammatory speeches and misleading the people. There must be fear behind it.

And he says that the people of Congress looted the country.
