Rahul Gandhi's meeting street vendors a political gimmick: Naqvi


New Delhi, July 13: Terming the meeting of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi with street vendors as "political gimmick of a part-time politician", Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday said that such attempts would not benefit the Congress.

"It is just a political gimmick of a part-time politician. The Congress would gain nothing from such gimmicks and these attempts only show its political bankruptcy," Naqvi said while referring to a visit that Gandhi paid to street vendors in Raghubir Nagar area in West Delhi today.
