Calling BJP a party of the rich, Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that while his party believes in the welfare of common man, the saffron party talks about India-shining, which is influenced by the prosperity of a small section of society.

"Congress believes in common man, labourers and farmers whereas the BJP harps on India shining, based on the rich and prosperous who live in skyrocketing buildings," Gandhi said at an election rally in Bhilwara constituency, around 220 km from Jaipur.

He said there is huge difference between the ideologies of the two parties which is reflected in their performance.

Observing that water-scarcity has been the biggest problem in Bhilwara constituency for years but no concrete efforts were made to solve it, Gandhi, who was here to campaign for PCC President C P Joshi, said that besides water, education, healthcare, road connectivity and other facilities will also be improved if party is voted to power.

Gandhi was accompanied by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and other senior party leaders.
