NEW DELHI: Even as Delhi and the country remained engrossed in Modi-Obama summit meetings, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday made his first delayed appearance in Delhi Assembly elections asking the Prime Minister “when will talks end and work begin”.  Targeting Modi, Rahul said, “There hasn’t been a single concrete result and people are asking, when will the talk stop and work begin?” He also said that the PM is in “self praising” mode and had not devoted much time working for the poor.

In his first road show at Delhi’s Kalkaji constituency, Rahul said, “Since May, the NDA Government is at the Centre and the Prime Ministerji is busy doing PR (public relations). The PM is indulging in PR stunts?”

He accused Central government for its apathetic attitude towards the poor and busy favouring industrialists. “Poor are ignored and only three to four industrialists are being favoured,” he said after completing his four-km road show, which attracts huge crowd.

Meanwhile, the BJP reacted very strongly to Rahul’s statement. “The Congress and its leadership is rattled by the successful visit of US President Barack Obama to India,” Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said.

“I am amazed by the comments. His criticism only shows to what extent the Congress is cut off from the reality of changes in the country and the significance of the initiatives of our government led by Modi.”
