As voting was being held on Thursday for the second phase of elections, Congress president Rahul Gandhi reminded people to "vote for Nyay" (justice) for the people, including unemployed youth, farmers and small traders who suffered due to demonetisation.
He used the hashtag "VoteNyayVoteCongress" with his appeal.
When you vote today, remember that you vote for Nyay.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) April 18, 2019
Nyay for our unemployed youth; for our struggling farmers; for the small traders whose businesses were destroyed by Demonetisation; for those who were persecuted because of their caste or religion. #VoteNyayVoteCongress pic.twitter.com/VvEZPPX5b8
"Nyay" is also the social welfare scheme announced by the Congress party in its election manifesto that promises to pay Rs 72,000 per annum to families living below the poverty line.
The second phase of polling for Lok Sabha elections began today in 95 constituencies.
