Launching a fresh attack on Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal's AAP leader Kumar Vishwas today said the Congress Vice-President was not capable of taking up any responsibility in the country.

"He (Rahul) is not capable enough to take up any responsibility in the country as whenever sensitive issues like Damini and Gudia (rape cases) came to the fore, he remained abroad," he told reporters here.

"He was never seen in and outside Parliament putting forth his views on serious issues...The people cannot hand over the country's rule to him," the Aam Aadmi Party leader


Asked about Priyanka Vadra campaigning in Amethi for Lok Sabha polls, Kumar Vishwas said, "She is my sister also....Now, it has to be seen whether she supports this brother (Vishwas),

who had been hit by lathis for asking for justice in Damini and Gudia rape cases, or for the one (Rahul) who remained abroad."

During his visit here, Kumar Vishwas held meetings at Jamo and Jagdishpur areas of the district and sought details of funds spent on Amethi's development.

"It is ironic that even 20 per cent of roads were not constructed in Amethi under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (PMGSY)," he claimed.

Kumar Vishwas had yesterday also attacked the Congress MP in his Parliamentary constituency, questioning his claims on development of Amethi and had said he should explain where thousands of crores of rupees meant for development had gone.
