Clash erupts between Congress, BJP workers during Rahul's Amethi roadshow

Commotion ensued as activists of the BJP and the Congress came face to face and the police had to intervene.

"On cue, the BJP government and the party both launched a synchronised attack on the Congress chief with deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya advising Gandhi against "playing God" and UP minister Shrikant Sharma described him as suffering from an 'attention seeking disorder". He will also be visiting the Hanuman Mandir and eat khichdi, specially prepared for Makar Sankranti.

Taking a dig at the Congress president, the BJP said Rahul's temple visit was "just for show".


The BJP blamed that the "poorly-tasted" posters of the PM were handiworks of the opposition Congress. "Lots of MLAs and MPs stop to pray at this temple", said a Congress worker. "People are looking forward to welcome him", Singh said. "Rahul Gandhi should utilize his energy in the development work", Adityanath said. "(Rahul is the incarnation of Lord Ram; Rahul Raj will be seen in 2019)".

In another poster, the Congress president was eulogised as Lord Krishna running the chariot with Arjuna during a battle in Mahabharata. "Both talks big and do lip service instead of working for the development of the farmers, youth and the poor both governments are at the disposal of the rich and corporate houses". Rahul promised to revive the food park project on forming government at Centre. Rahul is on his two-day visit to Amethi. He will reach Amethi via his mother's parliamentary constituency Rae Bareli. "This is shameful that people who elected Rahul Gandhi to Lok Sabha wanted to meet him and were shooed away", Shukla said. At Harchandpur, he stopped at a school, had a chat with students and gave them autograph.
