Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that he aims to put an end to hatred in the country and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to be defeated at the Centre for the purpose

Addressing an election rally at Nampally in Telangana, he alleged that RSS, Modi and "hardliners" have spread hatred in the entire country

Congress coined a slogan of "opening a 'mohabbat ki dukaan' (shop of love) in the 'nafrat ke bazaar' (market of hate)" during his Bharat Jodo Yatra, he said, adding that as he fights Modi, 24 cases have been filed against him in various states -- and the courts summon him from time to time

"First time, for defamation, I got two years' punishment. My Lok Sabha membership was cancelled. My government house was taken away. I said I don't want it. My home is in the hearts of the crores of poor people in the country," he said

An MP-MLA court in Uttar Pradesh on Monday summoned Gandhi in a 2018 defamation case over alleged "objectionable" comments he made against Union minister Amit Shah

Rahul Gandhi made no reference to the UP court summoning him in his speech in the rally at Nampally

"The fight is ideological and I cannot compromise on it," Rahul Gandhi said
