CSM Nagar: Congress leader Rahul
Gandhi`s convoy was today stopped by a group of people in a
village here demanding that only candidates with a clean track
record be given tickets for the upcoming UP assembly
Rahul`s cavalcade was forced to halt at Babuganj Khasra
village as supporters of a local leader blocked the way. They
requested him to ensure that the party should field "clean"
candidates in the assembly elections, party sources said.
The AICC general secretary, who is on a day-long visit to
his constituency to attend a number of programmes, also
visited Kisan Sewa Kendra at Gauriganj and inquired about the
availability of fertilisers with the godown in-charge.
He was also seen checking the stock register there.
"Rahul was told by some locals that they were facing
shortage of fertilisers on which he headed to the nearby Kisan
Sewa Kendra to check for himself," a party worker said.
