Addressing a Congress workers’ rally at Farrukhabad Uttar Pradesh on the fourth day of his second phase of the campaign for Congress, All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Rahul Gandhi said that the state can surge ahead only if the leaders think with long term vision. Rahul Gandhi promised that a Congress government will bring back the lost glory of Uttar Pradesh. But what did Mayawati do? He asked and quipped “when rich sell their land they get the market price. But in U.P under Mayawati Government if a poor farmer sells his land and asks for adequate compensation he got bullets and labeled as Naxal. In Tappal and Bhatta-Parsaul striking farmers were assaulted by the BSP Government. Mayawatiji did not go there. I went there, listened to them and understood their problems. The Congress led Government at the centre drafted a new Land Acquisition Bill. But some parties have been trying to block it behind the closed doors of the Parliament”. “She also did not found it proper to visit Bundelkhand too” said Rahul Gandhi referring his visit to Bundelkhand and the subsequent relief package sanctioned by the Central Government. Referring the news paper reports regarding the misuse of Bundelkhand funds he said “I read it in today’s news paper that some minister purchased tractors using the funds sent by the Centre under Bundelkhand package. We had sent Rs. 3000 cr for the poor people of Bundelkhand. But that went to the minister’s pocket” alleged the Congress General Secretary.
