Rahul Gandhi to address election rally in Sitapur today

Sitapur: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will address an election rally in Uttar Pradesh`s Sitapur on Thursday.

Launching a scathing attack at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi yesterday said work is not the former`s cup of tea.

“One can only expect Modi ji`s to give speeches. Work is not his cup of tea. Work will be done by Akhilesh Yadav,” said Gandhi while addressing an election rally in Uttar Pradesh`s Barabanki.

Continuing his tirade against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ( RSS), Gandhi said the only work of the two parties has always been to spread hatred.

“Wherever the BJP goes, it spreads hatred. Makes one person fights with the other,” he said.

Promising a better Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi said their government will work for the youth.

“We want to change Uttar Pradesh. We have not come here to give a hollow promise of Rs. 15 lakh. Two youth have met (Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav). Therefore, we will work for the youth,” he added.

Uttar Pradesh recorded 65.5 percent voter turnout in the second phase of assembly polls till 5 p.m.
