"She said that over 12 lakh women in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi constituency were directly benefited by the welfare schemes started by Rahul Gandhi."
Amethi, April 26 - Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has a vision for Amethi and has done a lot of work for its upliftment, socially and economically, his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said Saturday.

Rahul has foresight and his developmental works were not just limited to his constituency, but extended to areas around it. He has always wanted people to benefit from the development he initiated, she told a public meeting here.

Earlier, Priyanka campaigned for her mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, where she attacked the opposition parties for making personal attacks on her husband Robert Vadra and the Gandhi family.

She compared Rahul Gandhi with her father, former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, and said: Like Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul too had to face the criticism of the opposition parties.

Opponents say Rahul has not done much in his constituency but I have a long list of developmental works that he initiated for the people of Amethi, she said.

She said that over 12 lakh women in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi constituency were directly benefited by the welfare schemes started by Rahul Gandhi.

Today, Amethi has road connecting to cities, technical institutions, schools and proper training centres to train youth in various vocational programmes. Over 12 lakh women benefited directly from the welfare schemes started by Rahul, she said.
