AZAMGARH/GHAZIPUR/MAU : Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi concluded the first leg of his
six-day ‘Deoria to Delhi Kisan Yatra’ with a Khat Sabha at Bhadsar on Ghazipur-Mau Road in Ghazipur district on Sunday evening. Targeting the PM, he said,
“Modi selfie leta hai, masti karta hai, iski masti kam karna hai.”
Here too, people were seen taking away cots after Rahul finished his address.
The 6th day of Kisan Yatra of Rahul began with a meeting at Sathiaon in Azamgarh district, where SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav had recently inaugurated the
renovated sugar mill. It was followed by a road show in the weaver and Muslim-dominated areas like Mubarakpur and several meetings along the route to Mau and
Ghazipur. However, his road show in Azamgarh lacked the spirit like Jaunpur show held on Saturday. Before beginning the road show, he also made a stopover at
Aljamiyatul Asharfiya in Azamgarh. He also paid tributes at the statues of Congress leader Kalpanath Rai and BR Ambedkar in Mau.
Almost all speeches of Rahul remained centered on Modi, though he also targeted BSP supremo Mayawati and UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. “Haathi sabkuchh
kha gaya, apne cycle laya, wo puncture ho gayi, haath lao dekho hum kya karte hain (The elephant consumed everything, you brough bicycle but it got punctured.
Bring haath (Congress) and see what we can do),” said Rahul, adding, “We thought that Akhilesh is a nice man, he is young and will do something good. But, it is
unfortunate that he failed to deliver.”
