Lucknow: Amid objections by Uttar Pradesh
government to the secret visit of Congress general secretary
Rahul Gandhi to the state, a senior party leader on Saturday said
people were liking his unannounced tours.
"People are really liking these unannounced visits where
Rahul has to often introduce himself to people," AICC
treasurer Motilal Vora said in Lucknow.
On the state government`s objections to Rahul`s recent
visit to some districts, Vora said, "state apna jane...janata
bahut pasand kar rahi hai (state should think about
it...people are liking it very much)."
The Congress leader also wondered as to why objections
were being raised, saying "Rahul decides his own programmes
whether he has to visit UP, MP or any other state. When SPG is
extending security to Rahul, the Uttar Pradesh police should
have come to know about his visit."
Vora said Rahul had become popular among the masses,
"Wherever he goes people listen to him with rapt
attention," he said, adding youths have got attracted to the
Congress in a big way.
