“Rahul Gandhi was of the view that as the BSP government has failed to implement the central government-sponsored developmental and welfare schemes in the state the Congress should be voted to power for ensuring proper development,” party spokesperson Akhilesh Pratap Singh said.

Gandhi Tuesday addressed the youth functionaries in the state and sought their assistance for bringing the Congress to power in the upcoming state assembly elections, he added.

Rahul Gandhi’s two-day tour of his parliamentary constituency Amethi started Tuesday.

“The Congress general secretary said that there was no paucity of central government funds for carrying out developmental projects, but due to irregularities on part of the state government developmental schemes are not being executed properly,” said Singh.

Earlier in the day, Gandhi handed over possession of 24 houses constructed under the urban poverty alleviation programme to the beneficiaries.

He also met the woman Shobhawati, who Monday came in his way to seek his help in sorting out a land dispute case. Gandhi assured her of extending all possible help.

Shobhawati Monday blocked Gandhi’s way by lying down in front of his convoy heading towards Sultanpur.

Gandhi is expected to participate in the foundation-laying ceremony of a CRPF group centre Wednesday.
