Ballia, Jan 10 (IBNS): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on
Tuesday attacked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati and said that
she has never connected to the people of the state.
"Did you ever see Mayawati visiting any village i the last five years?
Did you ever see her dining with a family in the village? She has
never connected with the people in the state," Gandhi said while
addressing a gathering at Uttar Pradesh's Ballia area.
Gandhi said that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has failed
to develop the state during her tenure and she will not be able to
bring any development in the coming years as well.
He urged the people of Uttar Pradesh to vote for Congress in the
upcoming Assembly elections in the state.
"We promise to change Uttar Pradesh," he said.

politically charged Uttar Pradesh to regain the presence of Congress
in the north Indian state.
