Adityanath also questioned the "absence" of Rahul Gandhi when Gujarat battled floods this year.

Rahul Gandhi's allegations against RSS for discrimination against women on Wednesday dragged him into a political controversy, but the Congress vice-president is in the limelight yet again.

The remark drew immediate condemnation from the BJP with Union Minister Smriti Irani terming it as "indecent".

Irani had lost to Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha poll after a high octane campaign but significantly reduced the victory margin of the Congress leader.

He added that Rahul Gandhi gets mocked due to his child-like activities. "He will be one of our star campaigners in the elections", a BJP senior leader said. "We want to give momentum to development and are continuously working towards that end", Pathak said. "The whole DNA of Congress has been reeking of corruption", he said.

Mr Raj Babbar, while addressing the meeting, said that Mr Rahul Gandhi had given a new energy to the Congress and was carrying forward the ideology of Gandhi and it was the duty of every Congress worker to strengthen his hands. A large number of people from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Odisha migrate to Gujarat looking for employment in textiles, automobiles and other manufacturing sector.

He was referring to Rahul Gandhi's two visits to Gujarat during which he visited several temples, including Kabir Mandir in Saliya and was seen sporting a "tilak" on his forehead.

"This false propaganda is being effectively countered at the district level", Singh said.

The three-time Congress MP from Amethi also spoke about how he helped set up projects including a Rs 90 crore hospital, FM radio station, Rajiv Gandhi aviation university, Institute of Hotel Management and several others.
