Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi drew a lot of flak over his “long absence” from Amethi, with Uttar Pradesh minister Mohsin Raza querying if the leader has decided to say “goodbye” to his Lok Sabha constituency.
“I have been coming here for the past six months, but the local MP Rahul was not seen anywhere. It seems he has made up his mind to say good bye to this constituency,” said Raza, who was in Amethi to distribute crop waiver scheme cheques to 4,000 farmers.
The minister claimed that the people of the constituency have decided to give up on Gandhi and choose Union Minister Smriti Irani as their next MP.
“I think Rahul has also understood this,” the BJP leader said.
