Allahabad: Accusing Congress leader Rahul
Gandhi of "insulting" people of Uttar Pradesh at his Phulpur
rally, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Wednesday said his statements
were "immature and irresponsible".

"It was shocking to hear Rahul saying at the rally that
people of UP were begging in Maharashtra. Was he unmindful of
the fact that he was deriding the inhabitants of the very land
to which his ancestors belonged?" VHP international president
Ashok Singhal told reporters here.

Gandhi, while kicking off Congress` election campaign in
UP on November 14 had said, "People of UP are appreciated for
their hard work wherever they go in search of job...How long
will you beg in Maharashtra (for work)? How long will you work
as labourer in Punjab?"
