Jhansi (UP): Congress general secretary Rahul
Gandhi paid a surprise visit to a Dalit household in Medhki
village in Mauranipur area of the district and took feed back
on MGNREGA and other schemes from Bhadarwara villagers.
Gandhi made an unscheduled visit to Medhki late last night
and enquired about the problems relating to water, power and
fertilisers from the villagers.
Rahul spent some time with a Dalit family in the area
and during a `chaupal` (meeting), told the locals about the
central government`s schemes, Congress sources said.
Gandhi had his dinner of "puri-subzi" prepared by Arti,
daughter-in-law of Kunnjilal, a Dalit. He later left the area
after distributing toffees among the children.
Earlier in the day, to feel the pulse of youths in the
economically backward region of Bundelkhand during a camp
organised by the Youth Congress here, Gandhi had a detailed
interaction for around two and a half hours with the youths on
various important issues during Yuva Drishti training camp of
the youth wing.
Rahul visited Bhadarwara village this morning and took
feed back on MGNREGA and other schemes from the villagers.
No senior Congress leader or party functionary accompanied
Rahul on his mass contact programme in the district.
