Rahul gets a taste of Amethi problems


Rahul, who arrived on a two-day visit to his parliamentary constituency on Friday, met  local party workers and a cross-section of the electorate at Munshiganj guest house.
While interacting with people and taking stock of the developmental works in the area, the young Congress leader also had a taste of a “piping hot samosa” at a roadside eatery in Jais town.

Shopkeeper Ram Lakhan said he had a pleasant surprise when he found Rahul asking for a “samosa” from him.
The Congress MP later met with the students at the Indira Gandhi Post-Graduate college.
On Friday, Rahul had presided over a meeting of the district vigilance and monitoring committee at Sultanpur in which he had expressed serious concerns over the slow pace of developmental works in his constituency, while lamenting the rampant corruption in the implementation of such schemes.
“People are not getting full benefits of the Central government sponsored social welfare schemes,” Rahul reportedly observed. Complaints of irregularities in the implementation of the programmes have been pouring in from people.

Probe sought
Rahul asked Superintendent of Police Satyendra Veer Singh to undertake a probe into the alleged irregularities and complete the investigation within a fortnight.
Rahul later visited a temple in Pindoria village. He also met  the women members of over a dozen self-help groups.
Rahul was told by the villagers that the area had been experiencing prolonged power cuts and that complaints with the local authorities had not yielded any results.
