Rahul Gandhi visits Amethi with Priyanka Gandhi, says Congress does not talk, but act
Amethi (UP): Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi began his two-day visit to his parliamentary constituency Amethi on Wednesday. The Congress Vice-President said the Congress does not talk but act.

Rahul Gandhi reached along with his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at Fursatganj in the evening, walked a little distance on road and met people near the airport. He later invited an old woman to join him as he left the airport with his sister seated in the car behind. The woman, who hailed from Rampur, said Rahul Gandhi had stayed in her house to which the Congress leader, who nodded, said his relationship with her is old. "We don't believe in such things...Our habit is to deliver," said Rahul Gandhi, in a brief chat with newspersons.

"A good ambience is out here in Amethi. I have an old relationship with the people of Amethi.. Amethi is like my home and it is my family", said Rahul Gandhi. He added that the Congress party has done good work for the benefit of thousands of women and also in the development of national highways. Rahul Gandhi, however, admitted that one thing which has been lacking in Amethi is electricity and roads barring national highways. "We have faced difficulties on these issues as these fall under the jurisdiction of the state government," said Rahul Gandhi.

The Congress MP said that despite funds provided by the Centre to the Uttar Pradesh government the development of power sector in the state and in Amethi is not upto the mark. He also said some more developmental works are being executed for which he had come to inaugurate.

Rahul Gandhi announced a 200-bed hospital in Tiloi area, and said that people of the area would get medical facility in a better way after it is complete. The Congress leader said the Centre has done a lot of work in Amethi. "We worked on self-help groups of women, constructed highways. The only shortcoming was that we could not work in the field of power as it is related to the state government and Congress is not in power here," he said.

"To construct the national highways is the work of the Centre, we have constructed them... But constructing other roads is the work of the state. Funds are being sent by the Centre continuously, but it is not being utilised properly” added Rahul Gandhi. "Whether it is employment or the Petroleum Institute, lot many works have been done by the Centre," he said.

After meeting people near the airport, both, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, headed for Jais. They met people on their way. At Akelua crossing some locals met the Congress leader and complained about bad roads. Rahul Gandhi later inaugurated district Congress office at Gauriganj.
