"All opposition parties in Rajya Sabha united five days ago to send the Real Estate bill to a select committee... Amused that someone is trying to hog the spotlight," O'Brien said in an apparent reference to Gandhi's resolve to oppose the Real Estate bill.

Gandhi, after meeting flat buyers in Delhi-NCR today claimed that the NDA government had "diluted" provisions of Real Estate Regulatory Authority Bill making the legislation "pro-builders" from being pro-buyers.

"Government, which has been working against farmers and tribals, is working against the middle class in the same manner," he told reporters after meeting several NCR flat buyers here.

"I have assured them that the way I am helping the poor and the tribals, I will do the same for the middle class. I will stand by them," the Congress leader said, as he sought to link the "suffering" of the middle class home-buyers with the issue of land, which the Congress has made a major political plank.
