Neyyatinkara : Amid  Bharat Jodo Yatra,  Congress workers raked up funds on the side in the name of freedom fighters. According to sources, collection from some individuals were as high as 2 lakh rupees. Incidentally, the higher rungs and Rahul Gandhi himself had no clue to the collection melee.

Local Congress  workers spread themselves far and wide across Neyattinkara  quoting  Rahul Gandhi’s arrival  and unveiling of memorials of  the  Gandhians - KE Maman and P Gopinathan Nair, as reason for their fund drive.  The statues of Maman and Gopinathan were built at  NIMS Medicity where they were last hospitalised.

In the end, even as the families of both Gandhians waited eagerly for the unveiling ceremony, Rahul never showed up. That plan was canceled following decision to abstain from events at private establishments. Also, party  seniors urged Rahul to keep away in the wake of wide fund collection indulged in locally.
