I am not a saviour of Uttar Pradesh: Rahul Gandhi

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said he does not consider himself a saviour of Uttar Pradesh, but rather sees himself as a young man who is ready to work shoulder to shoulder for the development of the state.

Gorakhpur, May 5 : Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said he does not consider himself a saviour of Uttar Pradesh, but rather sees himself as a young man who is ready to work shoulder to shoulder for the development of the state.

Speaking to reporters during his final phase of campaigning in Gorakhpur for the ongoing Assembly polls, Rahul said he has seen the State in a different perspective, adding that development here was a detailed process.

"I have campaigned in Uttar Pradesh. I have seen UP in a different perspective, I am looking at UP as a detailed process. My impression of UP is that there is a great expectation among the youth of the state. When I say expectation, I don't mean the expectations from me. I meant expectation of the youth and the people of Uttar Pradesh. I don't see myself as a saviour of UP, I see myself as a young man who is ready to work shoulder to shoulder for the development of the state," he said.

The Amethi MP said that this was the start of a "long drawn process" of reviving the Congress party and taking it ahead in the state.

"I am not concerned about how many seats we get and how many seats we don't get. I am concerned about the Congress party getting back to life in Uttar Pradesh. We have not fought some of the elections in the past, but what we have done in these elections is that we have fought and we are fighting and this is an achievement," Rahul said. Commenting on the predictions of the exit polls, he said, "I am not an expert on these things, you know better than me. I don't want to comment on that. You have your own predictions".

Replying to a question on the lack of Congress cadres in the state, he ruled it out by saying that Congress cadres were everywhere and no one should underestimate them. "Morale is the biggest thing, and we are now getting it back enthused," he added.

Speaking on a possible hung House in the State, he said it was up to the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, and the senior party leaders to decide who would form the government and what would be the role of the Congress after the elections.

"I have my own opinion and would not like to share. Our aim is to take the party ahead in the state, and the decision which helps us do so will be taken by the senior leaders," he said, adding, "My point about a sell out alliance is that an alliance should be worked out in detailed manner. It should be done after detailed discussions".

He went on to say that his interest was to revive the Congress party in the state, which is a "long process". Rahul added that he was not bothered about the outcome of the ongoing polls and rather wanted to make his party a force.

"What other people think, their negative comments are not our concern. Ours is to build a good party, which is responsive to the people's need. Which delivers and works for the people. This is what I am interested in," he added.

Responding to a query about the so-called factionalism within the party, he said though groupings do exist, things have been exaggerated.

"This is not true that if one gets the ticket thousand start campaigning against him. Gutbaazi is a fact and it is a part of the system. What my duty and the duty of the other people in the party is to ensure the best candidate who works in favour of the people," Rahul said.
