Posters of a “missing” Rahul Gandhi were found on the walls of Congress party district office in Amethi on Thursday morning. These posters, saying Rahul Gandhi has gone missing, assured a reward in exchange for any information provided about him. The posters have been allegedly put up on behalf of the residents of Amethi, who felt cheated due to Rahul’s behavior, reported The Indian Express. Displaying pictures of the Congress vice-president as “lapata”, the posters said that Rahul Gandhi had gone missing in Amethi due to which all the works towards the development of the district were left hanging.
According to The Indian Express, the posters read, “Amethi ke mananiya sansad Shri Rahul Gandhi Amethi se lapata hain. Jiske karan sansad duara karaye jane wale vikas karya inke karyakal mein dhap pare hain. Inke vyavahar se aam janta dhaga veh apmanit mehsus kar rahi hai (The honorable MP of Amethi, Rahul Gandhi, is missing from Amethi. Due to this, the work towards the development of Amethi, organized by the MP, has come to a halt. The residents of Amethi are feeling cheated and humiliated due to his behavior).”
The Congress party leaders, alleging that the posters were put up by the BJP and RSS members to create a disturbance, said that Rahul Gandhi had been regularly working and raising issues in support of the people of Amethi. The party leaders have also said that Rahul had recently visited Lucknow to demand an appropriate compensation for farmers in Amethi, whose lands had been taken away due to a highway project being built by the NHAI.

Quoting Yogendra Mishra, Congress party district president, “The posters have been put up in bad taste by RSS and BJP just to create disturbance… they did so by hiding in the dark of the night. Rahul Gandhi is aware of the problems and issues faced by his constituency and thus, had recently visited NHAI office in Lucknow along with farmers from Amethi,” IE reported.
