Aam Aadmi Party member Kumar Vishwas Sunday said the Congress has failed the people of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, and that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi never raised the problems of his constituency in parliament even once.

"Rahul Gandhi, prior to elections, turns up in Amethi seeking votes, but when the time comes to work for the people there, he never pays heed," Vishwas said, addressing a public rally in Amethi, about 140 km from state capital Lucknow.

"Amethi has to decide now. I am an 'aam aadmi' and he (Rahul Gandhi) is a prince. If Amethi wants, it can get rid of dynasty politics. Winning and losing is not the point, but what is important is we are challenging dynastic politics and corruption," the 43-year-old leader said.

Vishwas said Rahul Gandhi would spend nights in Amethi to win the sympathy of people in his constituency, but that alone would not solve their problems.

"There are a lot of other problems to which Rahul has paid no heed," he said, explaining that he was firmly resolved to contest the next Lok Sabha elections from Amethi.
