Lucknow: As part of Congress' attempt to regain power in Uttar Padesh after its 27-year exile, party vice president Rahul Gandhi, Tuesday, will embark on the 2500 km-long Kisan Yatra from Deoria.

Starting from Panchlari Kritpura village , the 'Deoria to Dilli yatra' will be marked by a door-to-door campaign of collecting 'Kisan Mangpatras' (charters of farmers demands), one-to-one interaction with farmers through Khaat (cot) Sabhas.

The Khaat Sabhas have been designed similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's very popular 'Chai par Charcha' during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Rahul Gandhi's office said in a tweet: "My yatra from Deoria to Delhi starting September 6 is a campaign to secure the rights of the poor, farmers and labourers in government resources."

Gandhi will also hold road shows at various places during the yatra.

On the first two days, Gandhi will cover Kushinagar, Gorakhpur, Sant Kabirnagar and Basti besides Deoria.

The party has made preparations for making the Congress leader's longest yatra in the state a success.

A team of national spokesmen will also be stationed in Lucknow to apprise media of the developments.
