Uttar Pradesh, Sep 11, 2016: The ‘Kisan Mahayatra’ of the Congress on Sunday reached Azamgarh where party Vice-President Rahul Gandhi addressed a public meeting at Sathison Mod and launched a scathing attack on BSP and Akhilesh government by saying while the “elephant” has eaten all the money, the “cycle” is standing “punctured” in the state.
“Haathi saara paisa kha gaya. Hathi ko apne maar ke bhaga diya (elephant–the election symbol of BSP–ate all the money and then you chased it out),” Gandhi said while addressing a public meeting on the sixth day of his yatra.
“Phir aap cycle (SP’s election symbol) laaye. Ye paanch saal se phansi hui hai, hil nahi rahi hai. Uska tyre puncture hai aur apko ration card nahi dila pa rahi hai (Then you voted for SP’s cycle which has been stranded for past five years. It’s tyre is punctured and is not moving. The party could not provide ration cards to you),” he said.
While enroute to Mau, Gandhi had some quick break for some delicious chai & samosa with his party leaders.
The Gandhi scion, who is on his 2500 km ‘Deoria to Dilli yatra’ to connect with the masses in the run-up to the 2017 state Assembly polls, resumed his yatra from Azamgarh and after holding series of meeting in Mau he will reach Ghazipur.
