The agitated protesters cited underdevelopment issue as the main reason for fury against Gandhi. “They haven’t done anything in the name of development. You must have seen the condition of roads and electricity.

There is nothing in the name of education. We are just being bluffed for political gains,” said Shyamlal, an AAP supporter.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi praised party’s hard work in Amethi and said, “We have a lot of development work here.

We are putting our best efforts in every area, whether it is medical, health, national highways, employment, petroleum institute.

This is our home, family.” AAP leader Kumar Vishwas is planning to contest elections from Amethi constituency, which has been a Congress stronghold in the past and from where the Rahul would be contesting.

    First AAP were protesting against the law and now they are protesting against Rahul Gandhi. Showing black flags is what AAP is capable of. They can not run the govt.

    It is childish. Grow up AAP. Pointing fingers at other parties is easy and doing some real progressive work is something which AAP can not do.

  • Rajneesh Mehta23-Jan-2014

    If we look at the statistics of development., under UPA's tenure, Growth has averaged 8% per year over 9 years. The poverty ratio has fallen dramatically and 140 million Indians are no longer living in extreme poverty. So for what AAP is showing black flags? For the developments done by Congress?!

    Rahul Gandhi always seen as the ray of hope for the Amethi people, he did a lot for the people of Amethi. But some paid peoples from different party disobeying him.

    So AAP is pointing fingers at Congress, the strongest political party which supported AAP in forming the govt. in Delhi. What is this?! Rather AAP should do some extensive work with Congress.

    “Rahul Gandhi has been a great inspiration for the youth of our country.” Still "Rahul gandhi is the person who stood for crearting the group and uplfting UPA from roots. He has been migrating from states to states to know about problems of people. Such are the qualities of leader.".

    Kumar might have done the brain wash of a common man but what Congress did for Amethi is development of society they took out many reforms and policies for the development of the Amethi after all its Gandhi's place...

  • jatin23-Jan-2014

    the development Congress did to build Amethi is extra ordinary. Being a Gandhi city people fingering out on them is totally a brain wash activity done by viswas and the people doing it are of AAP so to rebel against him was mandatory. but being a genuine Leader RG came up with the solutions and the problem facing will to the people of Amethi...

    lol , some people prasing development of amethi , when they themself dont know where amethi is?

  • AS24-Feb-2014

    What's with all the Congress trolls? Are they NREGA sponsored? I am not personally familiar with Amethi but it doesn't surprise me that Rahul Gandhi (aka Pappu) has ignored it. Where is the time when you have more important priorities, like taking expensive international vacations and helping your sister and brother-in-law with their land scams? In another article he acknowledges the poor roads and electricity - but blames it all on the state government!! LOL, that's leadership right there.
