Lucknow: Caught off-guard by Rahul
Gandhi`s visit to Bhatta Parsaul on Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh
government has denied having any prior knowledge about the
Congress general secretary`s footmarch.
"The state has not been told about the duration of
his stay, we came to know about his visit only when he arrived
in the state," a senior official said.
"It could however be in the knowledge of the district
administration," he said.
The district administration is in a better position
to take decisions as per the requirement, he added.
Gandhi took everyone by surprise when he kick started
his Kisan Sandesh yatra from Bhatta Parsaul before the party`s
Mahapanchayat on Saturday.
