Cong surprised at BJP making issue of Rahul's dalit visit

Jamshedpur: Congress today expressed surprise that party general
secretary Rahul Gandhi's recent tours to the tribal and dalit
dominated pockets of the country has become an issue for the BJP for
the Jharkhand assembly election.

BJP did not have any achievements during its rule in the state to
highlight and that was why it wrecked up Rahul Gandhi's visit in
tribal pockets, AICC spokesman Mohan Prakash told a press conference
said here.

Perhaps Singh would not have any objection had Rahul Gandhi visited
the house of a rich person, Prakash quipped.

Criticizing the six-year 'misrule' of the BJP-led NDA government in
Jharkhand, Prakash said the mineral-rich state was lagging while
Chattisgarh and Uttarakhand, which were simultaneously created
alongwith Jharkhand, were now developed because of good governance by
the Congress and follow up work by BJP, he claimed.

"We will develop Jharkhand as a model state of the country in the
next five year, if voted to power," he said.
