Lucknow: To garner farmers' support for the 2012 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, Congress on Sunday decided to hold a 'Kisan Panchayat' in Bhatta Parsaul, the epicentre of the recent stir against forcible land acquisition, where the party leader Rahul Gandhi will be present.

The decision to hold the farmers' panchayat was taken at a party state executive meeting here, its member Akhilesh Pratap Singh said.

At the panchayat, problems of farmers would be discussed, he said, adding that the date of the programme would be announced soon.
