Rae Bareli: In what is sure to bring in huge embarrassment for Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, several party workers were captured on camera thrashing some youths, who were protesting against the Gandhi scion in Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli district on Friday.
The incident happened when Rahul was leading a roadshow in Rae Bareli district, which is Congress president Sonia Gandhi's constituency.
While the Amethi MP was appealing to people to vote for Congress in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Elections, some youths staged a peaceful protest with black flags in their hands. When the Congress members saw the bunch of youths raising slogans against their leader Rahul Gandhi, they rushed to attack them.
However, when the Congress members saw the camera recording their 'goondaism', they silently came back to take part in the roadshow.
Interestingly, during his roadshows, Rahul is urging people to vote for Congress and get rid of Samajwadi Party, which advocates 'goondaraj'.
Speaking to the media, one of the youth claimed that they were peacefully protesting against the Gandhi scion with black flags. However, this infuriated the Congress supporters, who eventually beat them up, he added.
The youth alleged that despite Rae Bareli being a Congress bastion, no development had taken place in the area. Hitting out at Rahul, he said the Congress leader is only visible during election time.
Rahul has undertaken 'Kisan Mahayatra' across Uttar Pradesh to reach out to the masses ahaed of high-voltage UP polls.
On a daily basis, the Gandhi scion, is holding a roadshow, interacting with people and repeatedly attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his UP tour.
