I will continue ‘drama’ of mingling with poor: Rahul Gandhi

Lucknow : With his political opponents dubbing his visits to villages and sharing of meals with the poor as a “drama”, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Wednesday said in Uttar Pradesh that he would “continue the drama throughout the life”.

“Every time whenever I mingle with the poor, visit their houses and share meals with them, senior leaders while sitting inside TV studios mock at me…They call such things a drama of Rahul Gandhi,” he told a gathering in Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich district, some 240-km from Lucknow.

“If mixing with the people to understand their problems and issues affecting them is a drama, I will continue with this drama throughout my life. I am not here to win elections…I am not going any where…I am here to change Uttar Pradesh,” Gandhi said while giving his third speech of the day.

Gandhi Tuesday embarked upon a five-day mass contact programme ahead of the state assembly polls next year.

“The opposition leaders call me a kid, who has no information about politics,” said Gandhi.
