Rahul Gandhi today took a dig at AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, throwing an open challenge to him and said the Congress does not talk but act - in an affectionate gesture invited an old woman to be seated beside him in his car during his visit.

Rahul Gandhi's indirect jibe at AAP came even as Kumar Vishwas sharpened his attack on the Congress Vice President, saying he was here on a "political picnic" and not to share the "pain" of the people.

Kumar Vishwas is likely to contest from Amethi in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi is the sitting MP from here.

Rahul arrived here along with his sister Priyanka Vadra on a two-day tour on his first visit here after he was made the Congress campaign chief for the Lok Sabha elections.

Rahul Gandhi, who arrived at Fursatganj this evening, walked a little distance on road and met people near the airport.

He was replying to a question regarding dharna by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Rahul Gandhi said the party has done good work for the benefit of thousands of women and also in the development of national highways.

He, however, admitted that one thing which has been lacking in Amethi is electricity and roads barring national highways.

"We have faced difficulties on these issues as these fall under the jurisdiction of the state government," Rahul Gandhi said.

Rahul said that despite funds provided by the Centre to the Uttar Pradesh government the development of power sector in the state and in Amethi is not up to the mark.

He also said some more developmental works are being executed for which he had come to inaugurate.

Kumar Vishwas has been repeatedly targeting Rahul Gandhi, saying he has done nothing for Amethi.
