UP Government Asks Rahul Gandhi To Reschedule Amethi Visit

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi

After the DM's letter became public on Sunday, Congress spokespersons argued that administration could not stop an MP from visiting his constituency and cited the visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Varanasi during Navratri festivals to back their claims.

These reviews coupled with unrest within the BJP over the Centre's inability to revive the Indian economy - as has been evident from the diatribes of BJP leaders Yashwant Sinha and Subramanian Swamy and RSS ideologue S Gurumurthy - provide a "suitable scenario" for Rahul's elevation, a senior Congress leader said. In three years, BJP chief Amit Shah has travelled to every nook and cranny of the country during festivals or otherwise.

Another BJP leader Rajeev Ranjan stated the Congress party is already accused of promoting dynasties, so the party should conduct internal elections in a free and fair manner. "I believe we should have a good mix between the old and the new while one must keep changing", Pilot said.

Mr Gandhi is scheduled to visit Amethi from October 4-6.

"In order to maintain law and order, a majority of the district police force will be on duty". Instead, the letter said, the member of parliament was apprised of the inconvenience being faced in maintaining law and order and providing him safety and security during the visit.




This is the first visit to Amethi by Rahul Gandhi since February 19 when he had addressed an election rally in his constituency. "They have clarified their mistake", he added.

Refuting the grounds on which the authorities have asked the Congress vice-president to reschedule his visit, Mr Singh told PTI that by October 4, nearly all the festivities would be over. "But certainly, the ruling party's chief has the information.This hides a story in itself", Singhvi said.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was asked to postpone his visit to Amethi on4 October.

Pilot told PTI that "there is a general sentiment" in Congress that Rahul Gandhi "should take over as the party president". "The mere last name will only take you so far", added Pilot, the son of former Union Minister and Congress heavyweight Rajesh Pilot. "It has been something that has been in the pipeline for a long time".
