The Hindu The Congress president reaffirmed her party’s commitment to protect the interests of the “aam admi”, 'who was the focus of the Congress’ policies and programmes'.

Skirting the issue of alliance with Sharad Pawar’s NCP, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday kicked off her party’s campaign for October 13 Maharashtra Assembly polls with a call to workers to reach out to the people with renewed vigour.

Ms. Gandhi reaffirmed her party’s irrevocable commitment to protecting the interests of the “aam admi”, who was the focus of the Congress’ policies and programmes.

“Your enthusiasm and vigour gives me confidence that the Congress will emerge victorious in the Maharashtra Assembly elections once again,” She told party workers inaugurating the newly renovated Mumbai Congress headquarters.

The renovated Congress headquarters has been named after former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

“You deserve kudos for ensuring that the fruits of the policies and programmes of our government in the State reached the targeted beneficiaries,” she said, asking them to reach out to the masses.
