Asked why he was also being fielded by his party from Wayanad in Kerala apart from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi told the media here: “South India feels hostility from Narendra Modi… They feel they have not been included in decision making.”

He said his candidature would send out a message that “we are with you, I am with you… This is the message.”

When a journalist queried about lack of alliances in some states, Gandhi said the Congress had teamed up with allies in Bihar, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.

“We have alliances across the country. I don’t know which newspapers you are reading.”
