Training his guns on leaders of rival political parties, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday alleged they forget the people and start looting the money after becoming the chief minister.

"The biggest problem in UP is that the leaders do not reach out to people to hear their problems. After becoming the Chief Minister, they forget about them and start looting the money.

"They understand only the language of money and not of the poor," the Gandhi scion told a string of election rallies.

"When there was trouble in Bhatta Parsaul only we went there. The Opposition said Rahul had gone mad and Mayawati termed it as natak (drama)," he said.

Targeting the BSP supremo and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Rahul alleged they gave nothing to the people except promises.

"The SP leader claims he is a leader of Muslims but what has he done for them," asked the Congress leader.

"There was drought in Bundelkhand but he never found time to visit the region and now he says he will turn Bundelkhand into Israel," Rahul said.

"When people of other countries visit India, they get amazed with its progress, but this progress is not reflected in UP," he said.

Urging people to vote for the Congress, Rahul said "if they can help in development of Maharashtra, Haryana, Delhi and other states, they can also make their state developed."
