Rahul brings Gates on rural UP tour

Pratapgarh is in limelight due to recent visit by Rahul Gandhi with Gates.

Gates was visiting Amethi, Rae Bareli and Pratapgarh with the aim of striking a partnership between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the private Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust that runs welfare projects in the Rae Bareli, Sultanpur and Pratapgarh districts.

Gates, co-chair of one of the biggest charitable organisations in the world, spoke to villagers, with Rahul Gandhi playing the role of guide and interpreter.

According to Hindustan Times Both Gates and Rahul showed no discomfort as they spent an hour at each halt, even though most of the rooms were cramped, had no fans or cooling systems or even electricity.
