"You vote today for the soul of India. For her future. Vote wisely," he said on Twitter. "No 2 Crore JOBS. No 15 Lakhs in Bank A/C. No ACCHE DIN.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted in Hindi, "Today, the Grand Festival of Democracy has started. The country does not have to be trapped in new tricks and has to follow the path to progress."

"We have to take India to new heights. We have to save it from lies, cheating and jumlas, and take it towards progresss with love, peace and brotherhood. Do cast your vote because now "justice will be done"," he said. The first phase of voting in the seven-phased crucial Lok Sabha elections is underway in 91 constituencies.
