‘Missing’ Posters Of Sonia Gandhi Appear In Rae Bareli
Lucknow: Posters describing their representative and Congress Party Chief Sonia Gandhi as missing appeared in Rae Bareli on Tuesday. It may be recalled that the same kind of posters appeared in Amethi about Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
A number of posters appeared overnight at Gora Bazaar, Mahanandpur, and the Government Colony in Rae Bareli, saying that their Lok Sabha MP is missing and reward would be given to anyone who can locate her.
Although the Congressmen immediately removed the posters, the people’s anger was evident. The poster read that it was released by the people of Rae Bareli who were feeling cheated by the absence of their Parliamentary representative.
Sonia Gandhi has not visited her parliamentary constituency this year and Rahul has not visited his parliamentary constituency, Amethi, since February when he came to canvass support for Congress candidates during the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
The Congress president did not participate in the campaign due to ill health.
Meanwhile, local Congress leaders alleged that it was a campaign by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
However, it is also being said that the posters appeared because people are angry that Sonia Gandhi discuss anything about the problems of their constituency during Parliament Monsoon sessions.
But, the Congress leaders insist that it is the handwork of the BJP and the RSS.
