Opposition disturbed by Rahul Gandhi's 'successful' road show in UP: Congress

Kanpur: The Opposition's attack against Rahul Gandhi's 'Kisan Yatra' in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh shows that they are rattled by the good response being received by him from the public, party leader Rajiv Shukla said on Monday.

"The Opposition is attacking Rahul Gandhi as they are disturbed by the good response being received by him for his Kisan Yatra. Such attacks will intensify once the Yatra covers more parts of the state," he said.

Shukla, who is in the city to inspect the preparations for a sports event, said Congress will win a majority in the 2017 UP Assembly elections. Asked whether Congress will enter into an alliance with other parties for the elections, the Congress leader said the matter will be decided by the party high-command.

BJP had mocked Rahul Gandhi's Kisan Yatra, dismissing it as "seasonal expression of sympathy in the season of elections" and claimed that while states ruled by it have seen maximum agricultural growth, those by Congress were known for cases of "land-grab".
