New Delhi, Jan 27: It seems Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has woken up from his deep slumber. After remaining inactive from national politics after suffering a humiliating loss in Maharashtra, Haryana and J&K assembly elections, Congress' poster boy on Tuesday campaigned for the party in poll bound Delhi.

Rahul jumps into Delhi poll bandwagon
The Congress vice president held his first road show in the national capital's Kalkaji area along with party leaders Ajay Maken and Arvinder Singh Lovely on Tuesday.

Addressing the road show, Rahul Gandhi attacked the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at Centre and accused it of favouring a few industrialists while ignoring the poor. The Gandhi-scion also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was busy doing his own "PR" (public relations) and has not done anything concrete so far.

"The NDA government came to power in May (2014). The Prime Minister has just been doing his personal PR, but no concrete work has been done," Rahul Gandhi said during a roadshow here ahead of the Delhi assembly polls.

"People are asking when will you (Modi) stop talking and start working? There is favouritism for some, and nothing is being done for the poor.

"Congress is the party of the poor. We will come back because we will keep standing by the poor, hold their hands and take them on the path of development," he added.

Promised electricity and water at the lowest possible rates for the people in Delhi Rahul said, "We have three promises. We will provide electricity and water on the lowest rate, will make contract workers permanent, and give right to shelter to the people of Delhi."

Meanwhile, reacting to the Congress vice president's remarks the BJP hit out at the Congress vice president and asked him to check his facts.

"Saying such things about PM Modi who is being lauded shows Rahul Gandhi's pettiness. Rahul should be spending some time in Amethi rather than on his holidays abroad," said BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao.

Reacting against the Gandhi-scion's remarks another BJP leader Shazia Ilmi said, "What else can he say? If he paid attention to whats happening in country, what PM has done he would know better. Rahul Gandhi should read the newspapers a little more and keep an eye on whats happening in the nation."

It must be noted that PM Narendra Modi has been earning laurels from global leaders for his actions.
