The Gandhis were visiting their pocket borough months after conceding their stronghold to the Samajwadi Party in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections earlier this year.
Sonia and Rahul got a first hand experience of resentment in their respective constituencies as they were booed during their trips. The Gandhis were there to take stock of development work in these towns.
Sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was accompanying Rahul to Fursatganj in family where they met some families who allege that they were harassed by the police and fake cases were registered against them.
The Gandhi family has been under attack over some serious corruption charges against its members, including Priyankaâs husband Robert Vadra who has been accused of making millions through shady property deals with real estate giant DLF.
Most recently, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy accused Sonia and Rahul of financial impropriety, involving the partyâs now defunct daily National Herald. They have been alleged to have acquired a public limited company having valuable property in UP and Delhi.
