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.
