Earlier, there was a tussle between the government and the Congress leaders throughout the day. First stop… then consent and then again rar…. The ongoing political tussle between the state government and the Congress reached its peak on Wednesday. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi held a press conference in Delhi at 10 am and then left for Lucknow. On the other hand, government spokesperson in Lucknow Siddharthnath Singh said that the government has taken some steps under the law and requested the opposition parties not to go to Lakhimpur now. However, by the time Rahul reached Lucknow, the government gave permission to go to Lakhimpur.

Late in the evening a delegation led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi, National General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi left for Palia. When Rahul Gandhi reached Lucknow at 2 pm on Wednesday, the government asked him to go on his fixed route and arrangement. As a result, Rahul Gandhi refused and sat on a dharna inside the airport along with his leaders. The administration finally allowed him to go to Sitapur in his own car after an hour. It was cited that he is a high-ranking security politician, so the fixed route will have to be taken.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi also had an argument with the police at the airport. He said how is this allowed? Saying that you have to go by police car. They are doing some kind of bullying. We will go by our car. I will not go by police car, I do not know where to take it? I will be sitting here until I can leave the airport. They think that we are afraid of these people, we are not afraid. I will not go without meeting the farmers. He said that the issue is not that Priyanka has been kept locked up, the issue is that the criminals were not caught. He was not sent to jail. Farmers are being crushed. Rahul Gandhi was accompanied by Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal and National Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala. Rahul sat there on a dharna for some time.

Naseemuddin gave a sit-in

Hundreds of Congressmen were present outside the airport. They were shouting slogans against Rahul-Priyanka Zindabad and the UP government, but when Rahul did not leave the airport for about an hour, the Congressmen got upset. The Congressmen, led by Naseemuddin Siddiqui, started a sit-in demonstration outside the airport. Congress started shouting slogans. During this, he also got into arguments with the police several times. Earlier, inside, food was also served to Rahul Gandhi, Bhupesh Baghel and Punjab CM Channi in the VIP room.
