Azam Khan calls Rahul Gandhi a "Bachha" asks him to chew toffees

Rampur:  Senior Uttar Pradesh government cabinet minister Azam Khan on Sunday took a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, saying he is still a kid and nobody takes him seriously.

Samajwadi Party senior leader Azam Khan sarcastically said that he wondered as to why the country did not take the Congress vice-president seriously.

When Khan was asked about Gandhi's recent Bundelkhand. trip, he said, “He should take some toffees along, have them, and distribute them among other kids too. I don’t understand why this country doesn’t take him seriously. He is doing a lot of work and travelling to various places.”

Earlier on Saturday, the Congress vice-president undertook a 7-km ‘padyatra’ (foot march) in drought-hit Bundelkhand of Uttar Pradesh.

While addressing the villagers during his march, Gandhi demanded that some of the money saved by the government due to big drop in crude oil prices be diverted to the region.
