"Narendra Modi government is working only for the sake of capitalists," the Congress vice-president said while interacting with people in Pure Ladai village during a two-day visit to his Lok Sabha constituency, which began today.

Referring to the Centre's Land Acquisition Bill, he alleged that the NDA government wanted to grab the land of the farmers through this legislation 'but Congress went hammer and tongs against the measure and opposed it'.

At the same time, he said his party could not meet the aspirations of the people to the desired extent as it was not in power at the Centre or Uttar Pradesh. This was Rahul's first visit to his Lok Sabha constituency after the Monsoon session of Parliament which saw Congress creating a storm over issues like Vyapam, Lalitgate and Land Acquisition Bill.

Rahul, who landed at Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport at Lucknow this morning, headed straight to his constituency where he is scheduled to hold interactions with the people to apprise them of Centre's 'anti-people' policies.

During his brief stopovers on way to Amethi, he sought to drive home the point that Congress alone could protect the interest of the nation. "It is your duty to strengthen Congress. The future of the country lies in the hands of Congress," he added. Rahul also went to Dakhin village and interacted with locals.
