Taking a swipe at Rahul Gandhi, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas on Thursday said he would build a house in Amethi and live with the people, unlike "Yuvraj" who stays in 'Rajmahal (palace)'.

Stating that he would not leave Amethi, Vishwas, who is likely to contest the Lok Sabha polls in an Aam Aadmi Party ticket from Amethi, said, "I am a servant and not Yuvraj. I will build a house here to stay."

"He (Rahul) claims that the people of Amethi are his family... But he stays in 'Rajmahal' and travel by air while the people here do not have roof over their head... Which type of family relation is this?" he asked.

Mounting attack on the Congress vice-president, Vishwas said, "Rahul used to tell tales of development in Amethi but it is not seen anywhere here... He used to lure people by only assurances but now people have started understanding the reality. Now he is resorting to a lot of gimmicks."

Trying to corner Rahul over the issue of corruption, the AAP leader said he used to talk about corruption but forgot that maximum number of corruption cases came to the fore in the government "patronised" by him.
