On the eve of the critical vote count for the Lok Sabha elections, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge issued an impassioned appeal to the nation's bureaucracy. In an open letter, Kharge called on civil servants to uphold the Constitution and perform their duties impartially, admonishing them to resist any undue influence or intimidation.

Highlighting the importance of strong democratic institutions, Kharge applauded the Election Commission of India and other forces for their dedication in overseeing the mammoth electoral process. He emphasized the foundational role of the Congress party in creating a resilient governance framework backed by the Constitution.

Kharge expressed concerns over a perceived erosion of independent institutions, attributing this to coercive tactics by the ruling party. He underscored the need for bureaucracy to maintain its integrity and independence, as envisioned by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. With the vote count imminent, both the ruling NDA and opposition INDIA bloc are confident of victory.
