He also laid emphasis on the “one family, one ticket” rule to ensure that multiple members of one family do not contest polls without working for the party.

Addressing the closing session of the party’s three-day ‘Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir’ here, Gandhi said, “We have to accept that the Congress’ connection with the people has been broken.” “Our fight is for ideology. We have to go to the people and sit with them, the connection the party had with people has to be re-established,”he said.
