Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party in Uttar
Pradesh on Tuesday alleged that Congress General Secretary Rahul
Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi have failed to ensure
development of their own constituencies.

"...Rahul and his mother (Sonia Gandhi) have even failed
to ensure road connectivity and electricity supply of
villages in Raebareli, Amethi and Sultanpur," SP leader
Shivpal Singh Yadav told reporters.

Raebareli and Amethi are constituencies of Sonia and
Rahul respectively.

He said although Rahul is touring the state, he should do
more for the uplift of the poor.

"Rahul mehnat to bahut karte hain. Pure pradesh me ghoom
rahe hain. Ham to ye kahenge ki wo ghoome nahi kuch karein
(Rahul is working hard and is touring the state. But instead
of travelling he should act (on the problems of common man),"
he said in reply to a question.

Rahul began his party`s poll campaign on November 14 from
Phulpur, his grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru`s constituency.

Yadav alleged that Rahul visited houses of the poor in
past but did not even ensure any monetary help to them.
