Protest is fuming among Congress leaders and workers of Kerala against Rahul Gandhi for not visiting the site of the stampede at Pullumedu in Idukki district in which 102 Sabarimala pilgrims died despite the fact that he was staying at a place less than 200 km away from there when the disaster occurred on Friday night.
Rahul Gandhi had spent entire Saturday at Ambalappuzha, a temple town in Alappuzha district, attending a marriage function and at Kumarakom, where he savored Kerala’s ethnic cuisine and enjoyed flute and Ghazal concerts at a tourist resort. He had arrived in Kerala on Friday evening.
The allegation is that Rahul failed to visit the disaster site or the place where the bodies were taken to even when he was staying at a nearby place while all top political leaders, including octogenarian Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan and septuagenarian Opposition leader Oommen Chandy were there leading the rescue and relief operations.
Finally, Rahul Gandhi decided to fly to Vandipperiyar, the town nearest to the accident site on Sunday morning reportedly following the insistence of PCC leaders including its president Ramesh Chennithala, allegedly with the hope of getting the entire media focus
on him, but he could not land there due to bad weather.
“I am ashamed to say this but Rahul’s behaviour was not something the people expected from Congress leaders. He should have rushed to Idukki from Alappuzha on Saturday morning itself,” said a Congress leader from Idukki district, who had spent the whole of Friday night and Saturday in relief work..
“He should have understood the seriousness of the situation. This was a national disaster. We have heard of Nero, who played fiddle when Rome burned. Rahul’s only difference is that he was enjoying flute instead of playing fiddle when 102 pilgrims were lying dead just a couple of kilometers away,” he fumed.
A section of Congressmen in Idukki expressed the suspicion that Rahul Gandhi had decided not to land at Vandipperiyar not because of fog and rain but after he was convinced that no activity related to the tragedy was going on there. “Even the last of the injured had left the place. Then why should he land there?” asked the leader from Idukki.
Congress leaders at Vandipperiyar and Kumily, where the autopsy on the bodies of the victims were done, said there was no excuse for Rahul Gandhi’s absence at the accident site. Also, they were not prepared to accept the argument that he had been in Kerala on a private visit.
“He had come for a marriage which was over by Saturday morning itself. I think even the people at the marriage would have praised him if he had cancelled that programme and rushed to Idukki to lead the relief works. Then he had enjoyed the whole day sightseeing and in the evening he was partying at a resort at Kumarakom. Simply, this is not Congress culture,” said a Congress leader.
Earlier - When Mumbai was burning Rahul Gandhi was drowned partying with his Page3 pals.

Even before the tears of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s mother could dry up, Congress general secretary and heir apparent Rahul Gandhi went partying with his pals at a farmhouse on Delhi’s outskirts.
The Prince partied hard, till 5 in the morning, on Sunday at the ‘sangeet’ for the forthcoming wedding of Samir Sharma, his childhood friend. They were at a sprawling farmhouse at Radhey Mohan Chowk, the haven of people who lead charmed lives beyond Chhatarpur.
Just a day earlier, his sister Priyanka Vadra had caused a flutter by saying the late Indira Gandhi would have “made us very proud” by the way she would have reacted to the Mumbai terror strikes. Mumbai appeared to be far from her brother’s mind as he boogied at the farmhouse with Samir Sharma, US-based furniture designer son of Captain Satish Sharma, the late Rajiv Gandhi’s flying partner who nursed the First Family’s pocketborough, Rae Bareli, till Sonia Gandhi chose to contest from there in 2004.
The Prince seemed to be completely out of sync with the mood of the nation post-26/11. Since Wednesday night, officials have been cancelling parties they were meant to host and even restaurants called off special events.
Saturday night’s ‘sangeet’ was a lavish affair. It was hosted by Leena Musafir, sister of the woman with whom Samir is getting married, and her husband Inder. The party was attended by over 800 guests, including regulars at Page 3 dos. “When everyone is cancelling parties or just keeping them low-key, Rahul Gandhi had no business to be celebrating. His action makes us lose faith in future leaders,” said Ajay Bahl, a leading corporate lawyer who was trapped in the thick of the action on 26/11 at The Oberoi, Mumbai, but managed to escape with the help of the hotel staff.
The Gandhis, including Sonia Gandhi’s mother Paola Maino, were present in strength at the 2004 wedding of Samir’s sister, Sarika, who is married to actorturned- TV producer Rahul Bhatt. Sarika and Rahul now manage a television production house.
The two families may be very close — Captain Sharma and his wife, Sterre, were present throughout the very private wedding of Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Vadra — but the circumstances now are very different.
As a guest at the ‘sangeet’ remarked on the condition of anonymity, “We were all partying, but none of us is a public person. Rahul Gandhi, however, is. He must be more responsible in his social appearances.
