Rahul’s visit in UP rescheduled and shortened


Lucknow (Uttam Hindu News): The Uttar Pradesh leg of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra has been rescheduled and shortened due to the UP board exams.

UPCC chief Ajay Rai said the Yatra will now enter UP on February 16 instead of February 14 and will end on February 22/23 instead of the earlier plan of February 27/28.

The journey will leave western Uttar Pradesh and head towards Bundelkhand. A revised scheme will be released shortly, it will continue with its primary itinerary from Chandauli to Lucknow.

After entering Chandauli, the yatra will head towards Varanasi and pass through Bhadohi, Prayagraj and Pratapgarh before entering Amethi.

Rae Bareli and Lucknow are the next stops.

As per the plan, the yatra will cover Amethi and Rae Bareli on February 19. However, instead of going from Lucknow to Sitapur, it will now go to Kanpur and then to Jhansi from where it will enter Madhya Pradesh.

Rai said, “This change has been made in view of logistics issues. The places where the cadres and organizers were supposed to stay are usually private schools or colleges which will now be reserved for board examinations.”

“We do not want to give the message that Rahul’s presence in a particular area did not help us win seats,” a senior leader said.
