Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has been attending many rallies and public meetings across the country as the Lok Sabha elections enter the fifth phase of polling. In one such rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur, Congress president was seen addressing empty chairs, as reported by Republic TV. Rahul Gandhi was invited as chief guest at the Gulzar Shah Malla ground in Sitapur, adjacent to Lucknow, but there was no one to hear him in the meeting. Most chairs were empty whereas a small number of people were seen at the venue.

In view of the rally, security arrangements were beefed up throughout the town. After his rally in Sitapur, the Congress President left for addressing a public meeting at Union Inter College ground in Barabanki at 12.30 pm. Later Rahul Gandhi will address a public meeting at RNA mass rally ground in Piparia, Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh.

In an election rally in Patharia yesterday, Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the BJP saying that they are approaching the Election Commission with the complaint that he is using the word ‘Chowkidar’ in his rallies. Rahul said that BJP shouldn’t use the word ‘Chowkidar’ because when they use it, they get a reply from the audience-“Chor Hai”. It is notable to mention that yesterday Rahul Gandhi was asked to tender an apology by the Supreme Court for falsely attributing the ‘Chowkidar’ jibe to the apex court. The Supreme Court had pulled up Rahul Gandhi for being disingenuous in the affidavit filed in the Court.

With people seeing through Rahul Gandhi’s poll rhetorics, it is no wonder why his rallies are being sparingly attended and are turning out to be a massive flop as the Congress chief finds increasingly fewer takers for his political blusters. Voting in Sitapur Lok Sabha constituency will take place on 6th May, on the 5th phase of the elections. Wich just a few days remaining for campaigning in the constituency, such low attendance in a rally by party president is definitely not good news for the Congress party.
