Taking a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, state revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia said that Rahul's padyatra (foot march) was "a mere antic to get into the limelight and save a party reduced to a handful of seats".

"Rahul never bothered about common man when his UPA (United Progressive Alliance) was in power.

A man who remains missing for 68 days cannot work for the uplift of the poor," said Majithia after distributing Rs 1 crore grant for the development of some villages in Majitha assembly constituency. He said had Rahul been sincere to the poor and farmers, the Congress would not have hit rock bottom and its leadership would not have faced endless challenges.
