He was speaking at a mega public rally in Amethi attended BJP chief Amit Shah and Union Minister Smriti Irani.  

"What has the Congress done for Amethi? I have given jobs to the poor, houses to the homeless. I wonder where was the money going then," said Adityanath.

Adityanath said, "We will not let land acquisition in the name of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation."

He took a dig at Rober Vadra, saying  "Gandhi family son-in-law tried to acquire land somewhere else and now  we won't let son (Rahul Gandhi) acquire land in Uttar Pradesh."

"Italy, not Amethi, was in Rahul Gandhi's agenda. Smriti Irani has made the Congress leader come here," Said the CM. 

This is CM Adityanath's maiden visit to Amethi since he took the reins in March. Adityanath has often referred to Gandhi as 'shehzade' (scion) and 'vanshwad' (dynast).

The BJP mega show on Tuesday is expected to act as a dampener for the big move in Congress ranks.
