Ahead of the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha polls, the national capital witnessed high-profile rallies by PM Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. While PM Modi addressed a public meeting at Ghonda in North East Delhi, in favour of MP Manoj Tiwari, Rahul Gandhi held a rally with party candidates Kanhaiya Kumar and JP Aggarwal from North East Delhi to Ashok Vihar and Ramlila Maidan in Chandni Chowk.  

Newslaundry attended both the rallies and asked similar questions to the participants on issues such as inflation, unemployment, women’s safety, democracy, Constitution, and the arrests of opposition leaders. For people at the Congress rally, inflation and unemployment were major issues, while those at the BJP rally said the real issue was nationalism and the demand for temples in Varanasi and Mathura.
