Wayanad : Addressing his first election rally in Kerala's Wayanad, his second Lok Sabha constituency seat, Rahul Gandhi said that he has come here as a son and best friend.
He also claimed that his decision to go for a seat in South is to send a strong message that South India is also important. "I wanted to send a message that the South is as important as rest of the country. Your voice is as strong as others," Rahul Gandhi said.
