"I am coming here for past six months, but the local MP Rahul was not seen anywhere. It seems he has made up his mind to say good bye to this constituency," Raza, who was in Amethi to distribute crop waiver scheme cheques to farmers, said.

The minister claimed that the people of the constituency too had made up their mind to show the door to the Congress leader and elect Union minister Smriti Irani as their MP.

"I think Rahul has also understood this," he said.

Calling BJP, a party of all religions and sections, Raza said the Opposition used to say that the BJP had not given ticket to any Muslim during the Assembly polls.

"I want to tell them that I have not not only been made a minister but also an MLC by the same party," Raza, who is the sole muslim in chief minister Yogi Adityanath's council of ministers, said.

Raza, who is the incharge minister of this district, distributed cheques to 4000 farmers, officials said.
