Rahul Gandhi Kicks Off Kisan Yatra

Eyeing on the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi kicked off his 2,500 km-long Kisan Yatra from Deoria on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the vice president also offered prayers at Dugdheshwar Nath temple in Rudrapur, where he interacted with people in the temple premises.

‘Kisan yatra’ is an effort to end Congress’ 27-years-long exile from power in the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly polls.

Rahul Gandhi said  it is a campaign to secure the rights of the poor, farmers and labourers in the government resources. During the mahayatra, Congress vice-president will cover as many as 233 assembly constituencies to reach out to people ahead of crucial polls slated early next year. His campaigning would include door-to-door collecting of Kisan Mangpatras, one-to-one interaction with farmers ‘khaat sabhas’ in 21 districts and will also do road shows in numerous towns and cities.
