The Gandhi scion made the comments while addressing people on the third day of his padytra(foot-march) to Aligarh.
He said, “You are not together. Uttar Pradesh is divided and that is why dalals (touts) are running the state."
And added, “You may not like it. But this is true. Since you are not together that is why this is happening here. Unless you unite, you will continue to suffer. Unless you don"t understand what is happening, the train will not come on its track."
On the third day of his padyatra, the Congress heir apparent began his journey from Sarole village at 6.30 am and walked nearly 7 km to reach the village Alawalpur on his way to Aligarh.
He is scheduled to address a 'kisan mahapanchayat" on Jul 9.
Speaking to villagers, he said, “I started my padayatra from Bhatta-Parsaul which saw the operation by the Mayawati Government on farmers in which many people were killed. I wanted to meet you personally and hear to your problems."
He added, “I have met a number of farmers so far and have not met a single one who does not want development. All farmers wish to get involved in the development process and in the progress of the state. Your land is pure. It is being taken away from you forcibly and they don"t give adequate price."
Rahul also stated his desire to help people irrespective of their caste. He said, “I am with you irrespective of caste. For me, everyone are human beings. I wish to help everyone and all the people of Uttar Pradesh."
The Congress heir apparent added, “No farmer is saying that we are against the building of roads of development, but we want to get involved in this development process. It is the government"s duty to include all of them in this development process. Wherever I go the farmers are ready to give land but are asking for their rights."
