You are my family: Sonia Gandhi writes to people of Raebareli following her Lok Sabha poll victory from the seat

New Delhi, May 27 (IBNS): UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi has thanked people in her constituency Raebareli for once again re-electing her in the Lok Sabha elections. 

In a letter written by her to the people of her constituency, she said: "I am promising you that to safeguard the basic values of the country and to uphold the tradition of the ancestors of the Congress, I will not step back from sacrificing whatever I have got."

She said the people of the constituency are like her family.

She even thanked the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party in her letter. The Mahagathbandhan did not field any candidate against Sonia in the seat.

" I am thankful to each and every Congress worker, and friends from the SP, BSP, Swabhiman Dal for the work put in for my victory in the polls," she said.

Gandhi defeated Bharatiya Janata Party's Dinesh Pratap Singh by over 1.67 lakh votes from Raebareli.

Her son Rahul Gandhi, however, received a jolt in Amethi.

BJP leader Smriti Irani defeated him in the seat which was once considered as a Gandhi bastion.
