Gandhi, who had extensively toured parts of Jhansi,
Hamirpur and Mahoba districts since Monday after addressing a
youth Congress programme, held a `chaupal` (village meeting)
near a mosque in Muslim-dominated Ghusiyari village in Maudaha
tehsil here this morning.
He also interacted with the villagers for over one and a
half hours, Congress sources said.
Besides apprising the people about the central schemes,
including the ambitious MGREGS and the special package for the
region, he took feed back on the party`s candidates for the
coming UP elections.
41-year-old Gandhi had a night halt at the residence of
Machcha village head Shabbir Ahmed where he slept on the
terrace, besides having dinner and morning tea at the house.
UPCC President Rita Bahuguna Joshi and local MP and union
minister Pradip Jain were also present.
The Congress leader paid obeisance at the village dargah
before leaving for Maudaha where he visited some villages to
establish direct dialogue with the people.
