Facing criticism from AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, Rahul Gandhi today said only those who were anti-democratic were against him.

"Only those who are anti-democracy and don't believe in the system are standing against us. Our work is development of Amethi. We have a long relationship from where, people will come and go, but we will stay," the Congress Vice-President said in a reply to a question here.

Vishwas is likely to contest from Amethi in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Rahul is the sitting MP from here.

The Congress MP arrived here along with his sister Priyanka Vadra on a two-day tour on his first visit here after he was made the Congress campaign chief for the Lok Sabha elections.

On a query about Kumar's allegations of improper use of MP local area development fund in the development of the area he said, "I am ready to give an account of my funds before the people."

He claimed that maximum work in central schemes had been done in Amethi and Rae Bareli, constituency of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, in the country.
