Mr Gandhi, at the national-level rally at the Ramlila Ground, attacked the BJP government ruling at the centre over the unfulfilled poll promises. Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also spoke at the event.

"Four years ago, people believed you. Now, they see through your lies. Your silence is also an answer which the nation has heard and rejected. But this anger has now been channelized," the Congress said in an article on its website ahead of the rally.
