“We can defeat hatred only through love. One can never remove darkness using darkness; we need light to free from darkness. Similarly, only with love and brotherhood one can win over hatred” said Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi while addressing a huge election rally at Biswanath Chariali in Sonitpur, Assam on Thursday. “That is what you showed in Assam. You have peace not because of the Congress party, but it is due to the efforts of its people. You defeated violence with love and it is a good lesson for others to learn” he added.
