At a rally yesterday in Phulpur, 30 kms from Allahabad, Mr Gandhi told the thousands gathered that their state was regressing under the leadership of "the mafia" who runs the state. He did not mention Mayawati by name, but he took multiple swipes at how she has failed the people of Uttar Pradesh. 'How long will you beg in Maharashtra (for work)? How long will you work as a labourer in Punjab? It will take only five years and the change will come," he said, asking the crowd to give the Congress "a chance for five years."
Id the usage of teh word BEG right for Rahul-whatever contex it
