In a post in Hindi on X, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said, “Today is the third phase of voting! I request all of you to come out in large numbers and vote to protect your rights.”

“Remember, this is not an ordinary election, it is an election to protect democracy and the Constitution of the country,” the former Congress chief said.

In a post in Hindi on X, Priyanka Gandhi said, “Dear people of the country, this election is an election to protect democracy and the Constitution of the country. This is an election to defeat historic unemployment, rampant inflation, institutional corruption and economic crisis.”

“Every single vote is important. Vote after giving it a deep thought and in large numbers, using your discretion. Vote for the future of you and your children,” the Congress general secretary said.

More than 1,300 candidates, including around 120 women, are in the fray in the third phase of the election. As many as 17.24 crore people, including 8.39 crore women, are eligible to vote in this phase and 1.85 lakh polling stations manned by 18.5 lakh officials have been set up.
