Rahul begins month-long Kisan Yatra from UP

Rudrapur (Deoria), Sep 6 (IANS) Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday launched his month-long Kisan Yatra from Rudrapur in the state’s Deoria district.

“Door-to-door campaign begins from village Pachladi. Met farmers and collected Kisan Maang Patras outlining their demands,” Gandhi’s official twitter handle said.

The Yatra will cover 2,500 km by road covering 39 districts and 55 Lok Sabha constituencies of Uttar Pradesh.

“Arrived in Rudrapur to a warm welcome and great enthusiasm. Join @INCIndia on this Kisan Yatra as we fight for rights of farmers, labourers and the poor,” Gandhi said in an earlier tweet.

Rahul is expected to meet farmers and unorganised sector workers during the campaign.

There will also be roadshows in small and big towns but no large public meeting.
