He said in Shillong, "You will not see him (the PM) hug a poor person, talk to a poor person or even engage with a poor person". There is a particular distance he maintains with the poor people which he does not with Mr Obama or others...

The question: Why is Rahul Gandhi talking so extensively about the Mohan Bhagwat and RSS, not Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, which is his principal opponent in the state?

"My grandmother (Indira Gandhi) is fond of North East, so was my father (Rajiv Gandhi) and I intend to come here often and spend a longer period with you and understand your culture and customs and understand deeply what Meghalaya is", he said.

In an apparent retort to Rahul Gandhi's suit-boot ki sarkar jibe, the BJP has claimed the Congress President wore a jacket worth Rs 70,000 at a concert oragnised by his party in the poll-bound state while being "indifferent" to the woes of people. She added that later that suit was auctioned for crores.

Rahul further alleged that if the BJP formed its government in Meghalaya, then there would be a threat to the state's culture, religion and way of living.

Five former Congress legislators - Rowell Lyngdoh, Prestone Tynsong, Coming One Ymbon, Sniawbhalang Dhar and Ngaitlang Dhar - had defected to the NPP founded by former Lok Sabha Speaker late Purno A. Sangma.

He said the very presence of all senior leaders and ministers down from the Chief Minister signalled the strong message to all the Congress workers and the people at large that the party remained united and will spare no efforts to win the support of the electorate.
