Amritsar: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley today said that the relationship of Rahul Gandhi with Amethi is “nominal” and it remains one of the most backward constituencies in the country.


“Despite having been a family stronghold for decades, the relationship of Rahul Gandhi with Amethi is nominal and it remains one of the most backward constituencies,” Jaitley said in his blog.

Expressing his views about Amethi, he said.

“Infrastructure in Amethi is inadequate. It is a constituency where internal roads are not the object of envy. Many industrial units are sick. It is a constituency of people living in inadequate houses.”

Jaitley said that his party is determined to put up a fight in Amethi.

“The tragedy of Amethi is that the voters were never presented with an alternative option. The BJP is determined to put up a fight for Amethi.”
