Low turnout at Shivamogga roadshows, rallies irks Rahul Gandhi

As the size of crowds that turned out for AICC President Rahul Gandhi's roadshows and rallies in Shivamogga district on Tuesday, were lower than expected, the party chief took district functionaries to task, at Davanagere on Wednesday.    

Rahul met Shivamogga and Davanagere block level Congress leaders at the Bapuji Guest House in a closed-door meeting on Wednesday.  When questioned, the functionaries blamed the summer heat for the low turnout.  

To this, Rahul reacted saying:"Is it sunny only in your district? And nowhere else in the country? The whole country is experiencing summer".  

Rahul asked party workers not to brag about their achievements and the achievements of ministers, but to focus on key issues of each region that ensure victory.    

He also sought suggestions from party leaders on how to attract youth into the party and strengthen it.  The AICC chief also called on martyr Javed's family.
