Rahul Gandhi’s road show in Kanpur on Monday landed in a controversy with the district administration claiming that it had violated the election code by stretching beyond the allocated time and area. Rahul’s roadshow was also shown black flags by youths belonging to some Muslim groups in Baghai area of the Cantonment. They were shouting slogans of ‘Rahul, Go back’.
The district administration had allocated time till noon and fixed a 20-km route for Rahul Gandhi’s road show. This was done as today is Shivratri and there could be a traffic problem,” District Magistrate Hari Om said.
