New Delhi, May 15 (IANS) Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Tuesday that he was pushing for a new language in politics which does not use violence and hatred even as ideological issues are debated intensely.
"I'm pushing for a new language in politics. Let's fight each other brutally on issues. Let's fight hard on ideology. But... Let's not use hatred and violence against each other. It's bad for (India)," he said in a tweet.
His remarks come amidst a slanging match between parties during the campaign of Lok Sabha elections with leaders also resorting to personalised attacks. Incidents of violence have also been reported from West Bengal during the poll process.
Gandhi had said after casting his vote here on May 12 that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had used hatred in the poll campaign and "we used love and I am confident, love will win".
