Congress President Rahul Gandhi wrapped up his two-day tour of Madhya Pradesh with a huge rally and roadshow at Rewa. He attacked the Modi government on the Rafale deal while addressing a rally at Baikunthpur, near Rewa.

Gandhi had kick-started his visit by offering prayers at the famous Kamtanath Temple in Chitrakoot, following which he addressed a rally in Satna. This was Gandhi’s second visit within a span of 10 days to the BJP-ruled state, where Assembly elections are due at the end of this year.

Gandhi asked the prime minister to "tell the public that you are a 'chowkidar' (watchman) and have not indulged in theft."

“I challenge Narendra Modi once again to answer my questions on Rafale when he is giving speeches. Tell the youth of MP why the (then) French President who signed the deal is saying that Narendra Modi gave Anil Ambani the Rafale contract?”

The Quint spoke to the voters of Rewa, where employment and roads seem to be two major issues. Shubham Mishra, a resident of Rewa, said that despite being 15 years in power, the BJP has not improved the conditions of the roads in the state.

Rahul Gandhi was able to attract huge crowds in his rallies at Satna, Rewa and Chitrakoot. If the Congress is able to convert these crowds into a vote base, the BJP might face an uphill battle in Madhya Pradesh.
