Youths disrupt Rahul's public meeting

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.
