In the video, the woman leader says: “I am winning. I am winning because of the love and support of people. But if my victory is without Muslims, I won’t feel that good. (Things will become sour). Then when a Muslim comes to me for work, I think let it be, how does it matter”.
“It’s all give and take, isn’t it? We aren’t all sons of Mahatma Gandhi, are we? (laughter). It’s not that we keep on giving and then losing in the election. This victory will happen with or without you,” Ms Gandhi said.
