Allahabad, Sept 15: A huge turnout at Rahul Gandhi’s ongoing Kisan Yatra brought smiles on the faces of Congressmen on Thursday. Thousands lined up on the roadsides to catch a glimpse of the Gandhi scion, who spent Wednesday night at And Bhawan, the ancestral home of the Nehru-Gandhi family. The Congress leader earlier started the road show after garlanding a statue of Chandrashekhar Azad.
After this he went to Swaraj Bhawan where overzealous party workers and supporters raised slogans in favour of the Congress party. He was similarly greeted at Katra where people jostled with each other to shake hands with Gandhi.
The entourage then left for the Hindi hostel after which it reached the fore brigade square. (IANS)
