Uttar Pradesh Bjp Unit Bans Congress President Rahul Gandhi From Inaugurating Road In Amethi District India News
In an embarrassment to Rahul Gandhi, Amethi district administration stopped the Congress president from inaugurating a road connecting Thauri village with Kotwa village.
The event was scheduled to take place as a part of Rahul's two-day visit to his constituency.
The 5.5 km long road was made under Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana at an expenditure of Rs 3.5 crore.
The action came after BJP district president Uma Shankar Pandey objected to the proposed inauguration by Rahul Gandhi.
"The work is incomplete while it has been made by Prime Minister Gramin Sadak Yojana funds. Rahul was trying to take credit of the government work," Pandey told reporters.
Congress worker Dilip Kaushal said that some confusion led to the problem.
Later, Congress district president Yogendra Mishra said "It was not inauguration. He was just going to take stock of the situation as the project was started by him".
SDM Abhay Pandey said that the inauguration has been stopped as the construction work was not completed.
