"It should not be seen as an endorsement of any political party or candidate," he tweeted after praising the work done by self-help groups in Amethi to improve the condition of women.
 
"My comment, last night, in a meeting with teachers and NGOs, in response to being asked whether I knew about initiatives in Amethi, was that although I had not seen the work done via self help groups in Amethi, I had heard it was fairly decent, and that I would stress on empowering people towards being self-reliant," he tweeted.
 
Addressing a group of teachers in Sultanpur last night, Varun had said that Rahul is doing good work through his self-help groups for ameliorating the condition of women and added that he would like to follow it in his constituency.
    
Rahul was quick to respond to Varun's comments.

“What Varun is saying is right. We have been working continuously in Amethi according to a strategy... we have laid foundation of education hub….done work for farmers according to a long planning got a food park..,” Rahul told mediapersons in Rae Bareli soon after his mother and party chief Sonia Gandhi filed her nomination papers for the Lok Sabha polls.    

"I am very happy that others are appreciating the work being done in Amethi … doing as per a strategy, connecting farmers to the world, and will continue to work in the field of agriculture, education,” he added.

Varun had earlier stated that there was a need to work like his cousin Rahul through self help groups for amelioration of women.
