Bharatiya Janata Party Shimla, May 9 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj Saturday said that Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi had a lot to learn about the villages of India.
“By visiting some remote villages in Uttar Pradesh, he considers himself an expert… he has to learn a lot about villages and economic conditions of the villagers,” she told an election rally in Sirmaur district in Himachal Pradesh.

She added that Rahul Gandhi needed to do his homework before commenting on the BJP, which he has said was indifferent to the rural masses.

“He should read our election manifesto to know about the party’s ideology about rural areas and the common man,” she said.

Sushma Swaraj was in the state to campaign for the party’s candidate for the Shimla Lok Sabha constituency, Virender Kashyap.

In 2004, the Congress won three of the state’s four seats. The BJP bagged one seat. Himachal Pradesh will go to the polls May 13.
