Market of hatred shut, shops of love opened in Karnataka: Rahul

New Delhi, May 13 (IANS) Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Saturday thanked the people of Karnataka on party’s expected victory and said that “market of hate has been shut and shops of love have opened”.

Speaking to the media at the party headquarters here, Gandhi said, “Want to thank the people of Karnataka, our party leaders and all party workers who have worked hard.”

He further said that the Congress stood with the poor and “we fought on their issue”.

“We didn’t fight on hate and we fought on issues of love. We fought with people, and the state has shown that love can win,” he said, adding that this will be repeated in other states too.

“In Karnataka shops of hatred have closed and shops of love have opened. It is a victory of the people of Karnataka. We made five promises and we will fulfill those promises in our first cabinet meeting,” he added.
