He stressed the difference between BJP-RSS and Congress ideologies and promised drastic action for employment.

The election campaign intensifies as both leaders address key issues and strategies for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, appealing to voters with contrasting ideologies and promises for the future. Stay tuned for more updates on the political battleground in India.
