New Delhi: Though Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi was successful in blowing up the issue of the land acquisition protest of farmers in Greater Noida in the corridors of power, the Amethi MP is still unhappy as his efforts could not bring the desired result either in terms of political mileage or yielding the state government to terms.

Unsatisfied by the lax attitude of his party cadre both at the Centre and in Uttar Pradesh, Rahul tried to stoke fire in the agitation by leading a delegation of farmers to the Prime Minister on Monday.

Though the Congress men did become active after the meeting and demanded CBI and judicial inquiry into the Bhatta-Parsaul incident, but the Amethi MP, according to sources, is still not satisfied with the fact that his protest could not bring any substantial change at the ground zero.

Villagers are still missing; panic continues to grip the village, but still the issue is gradually losing steam.

Sources said Rahul is unhappy with both Central and the state leadership because of their slack response to the agitation. Rahul believes it’s a setback for Congress if it could not gain substantial political mileage despite ensuring the kind of media attention his protest attracted.
