Ambedkarnagar While interacting with around 3,000 Dalit youths from 26
parliamentary constituencies of UP in Ambedkarnagar on Tuesday,
Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi made an oblique attack on
Chief Minister Mayawati's statue-making spree saying, "The money
allotted for development is being spent on stones."
Gandhi, who visited Ambedkarnagar district, a pocket borough of
Mayawati, garlanded the statue of Dalit icon B R Ambedkar installed at
the air strip.

During the interaction, Rahul asked the crowd to name five Dalit
leaders below 35 years of age. When the crowd failed to name them, he
urged the youths to take active interest in politics so that young
faces from the community could come forward. He also enquired if
people were getting proper NREGA benefits.
