LUCKNOW: Rolling up his sleeves and sporting a beard, in a typical angry young man style, Congress general secretary Rahul  Gandhi introduced an element of melodrama in his speech when he raised a piece of paper and tore it into two pieces. And appealing vehemently to the public, he said, “enough is enough. These are the false promises of the Opposition parties. We don’t want them now and I throw them away.”  He hurled the papers in the air and stared at the public for a few seconds.  Interestingly, the piece of paper, which Rahul had torn apart while addressing a public meeting at the  DAV College ground here on Wednesday evening, was not the “manifesto or the poll promises of the Opposition party”, but the paper mentioned the names of senior Congress leaders and party candidates, which are normally read out at the beginning of the speech.
