Kushinagar (UP): Some youths, allegedly
belonging to the Samajwadi Party, created a ruckus at a public
meeting of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi soon after
he completed his speech at Padrauna here on Saturday.

The trouble arose when the youths entered Udit Narayan
Inter College where Rahul`s meeting was underway and chanted
slogans and distributed pamphlets, official sources said.
The youths took off their shirts immediately after Rahul
ended his speech displaying slogans like "UP people are not
beggers" emblazoned on their vests.

A scuffle ensued between the Congress workers and the
youths in which the two sides hurled chairs at each other, the
sources said.
Some youths were reportedly injured in the clash, they
said.

A few youths were detained by police in this connection.
