    What are they going to do that they have not done in the past 50+ years of leading UP..?

    Nilch, nada.

    One look at the crown prince's own constituency will bare that fact.

    Generations of Nehru Dynasty.

    Former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, his grandsons Sanjay and Rajiv Gandhi (the sons of Indira Gandhi), as well as Rajiv's widow Sonia Gandhi has all represented this constituency Amethi.

    Some developmental facts:

    1>Amethi has 39.5% literacy level (national average being around 65%)
    2>Around 50% population is below poverty line
    3>Only 15% population has access to electricity
    4> Vaccination level is below 16%
    5> Around 16% of children die below age of 5 years
    6> Amethi received 3.06 crore as developmental fund (or MPLAD) from Govt. of India in 2009-10 of which Rahul Gandhi used merely 5.89% (0.18 crore).

    Now let us see his record as a champion youth icon Member of Parliament :

    1> The national MP attendance average in the parliament is 77%. Rahul Gandhi's attendance is 47%.
    2> National average for questions asked by MPs in parliament is 119. Rahul Gandhi asked ZERO questions.
    3> The national average for Debates attended by MPs is 15.6. Rahul Gandhi attended ZERO debates.


    Whole Gandhi-Nehru family failed to perform in a single constituency. Congress ruled the state for almost 40 years and it's the biggest culprit for current scenario and making fake promises ?? 5 year one can understand, 10 years, also acceptable. But how one will justify 40-50 years of misrule and bad performance in constituency as well as state. Hahaha, Joke of the decade.

    I had seen the source, But don't remember the link as of now.

    There is no relation between winning the election & development/performance.

    Amethi, Rai-Bareilley are 2 safest loksabha seats for Congress. Due to that, Congress gets good support from surrounding 6 districts too, But that is general election.

    In last assembly election 2007, They lost 2/3 seats in these 2 constituency and 3/4th in surrounding districts. Difference criteria for Assembly election.

    Most of the survey/predictions saying..... 1>SP 2>BSP 3>Congress+LD 4>BJP. (only few as 1>BSP 2>SP 3>BJP 4>Cong+LD)

    Let see, what will be the result. No prediction from my side.

    Rahul gandhi’s amethi and sonia gandhi’s rae bareli: Where do they stand?

    This article compares Purulia in WB to Amethi as WB was being tagged as `backward`, written sometime around WB Assembly election time, so not very old. Turns out WB has the highest agricultural productivity.

    RAHUL GANDHI’S AMETHI AND SONIA GANDHI’S RAE BARELI: WHERE DO THEY STAND?

    A comparison of the socio-economic indicators of Purulia in West Bengal with those in Rae Bareli and Amethi will tell the real story. The number of people below the poverty line in Purulia is 31 per cent compared to 54 per cent in Rae Bareli and Amethi. Likewise, families with electricity were 29 compared 14; per capita expenditure is Rs 461 compared to Rs 385; vaccinated children 84 compared to 16; neo-natal deaths 46 compared to 83 per thousand; and fatality below five years 89 compared to 160 per thousand.

    The Congress party’s high profile general secretary Rahul Gandhi has recently accused the Left Front government in West Bengal of taking the state backwards and perpetuating poverty. Strongly refuting Rahul Gandhi’s allegations, the CPI(M) organ People’s Democracy in an incisive editorial says: One can understand such campaigns at the time of elections. But, even these have to be based on facts and realities. Some parts of West Bengal like Purulia had been described as the most backward in the country. A comparison of the socio-economic indicators of Purulia with those in Rae Bareli and Amethi will tell the real story. The number of people below the poverty line in Purulia is 31 per cent compared to 54 per cent in Rae Bareli and Amethi. Likewise, families with electricity were 29 compared 14; per capita expenditure is Rs 461 compared to Rs 385; vaccinated children 84 compared to 16; neo-natal deaths 46 compared to 83 per thousand; and fatality below five years 89 compared to 160 per thousand.

    The bulk of India’s poverty is in our rural areas. The most effective way of tackling this is through land reforms. West Bengal ranks foremost amongst all states on this score. Nearly 1.3 million acres of illegally held land was acquired and distributed among over 3 million landless and marginal cultivator households. The registration of over 1.5 million bargadars (share croppers) brought 1.1 million acres of land under their control through operation barga. As of 2007, West Bengal whose population is 8 per cent of the country’s, having only 3.5 per cent of our country’s agricultural land, accounted for 22 per cent of the total ceiling surplus land distributed in the country. A further 16,700 acres of land were distributed to landless families between 2007 and 2010. Agricultural productivity and output have made remarkable strides. From a chronic rice deficit state, West Bengal today produces the largest quantity of rice. The Left Front government today supplies rice at Rs 2 per kilo to 2.64 crore BPL population.

    West Bengal is the third most intensely agricultural state in India with 76.61 per cent of its land under cultivation. However, only 28.1 of this is irrigated, unlike say Punjab which has 89.72 per cent, thanks to central projects like the Bhakra Nangal dam, the like of which are denied to Bengal. Despite this, Bengal today has the third highest average yield in India and its volume of foodgrains production is also third after Punjab and Uttar Pradesh (undivided; because of its sheer size not productivity). Today it is the country’s largest producer of rice. In the early eighties the per capita net agricultural product in West Bengal was 18 per cent lower than the national average. Today it stands over 10 per cent higher than the national average.

    Amethi, even though it is the pocket borough of the Gandhis, has fared rather badly.
