Khat robbed after Rahul Gandhi's chaupal

Modi government ignoring farmers, says Rahul

There was chaos as scores of villagers, many of them youths, pounced on the cots soon after Gandhi's speech ended and started taking them away to their houses. No one stopped them. Even some women and elderly men were seen taking hold of a cot each. The 'charpoys' had been bought by the Congress for Gandhi's "khat chaupal" as he started a 2,500-km Yatra in Uttar Pradesh, where assembly elections will be held next year. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the Narendra Modi government was ignoring the plight of farmers.
