Yogi Adityanath advices Rahul Gandhi to practice positive politics

Amethi has been a Congress stronghold since its formation in 1966

The CM said that it was not only Rahul Gandhi even Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav should also not indulge in negative politics.

The clash took place after BJP supporters protested with banners and placards against Mr Gandhi.

"We did not allow Rahul Gandhi to pass through the troubled Gauriganj-Musafirkhana route in view of the palpable tension there", Additional SP BC Dubey said.

State BJP spokesman Manish Shukla said, "Congress chief Rahul Gandhi is blaming BJP for lack of development in Amethi, but has failed to explain how in 70 years of being in power his party couldn't do anything for the constituency that has been sending the Gandhis to the Lok Sabha". It is Rahul's first visit to Amethi since he became Congress president.

Police used mild force to separate the clashing groups.

Gandhi faced angry protesters at the Rajiv Gandhi Chowk in Amethi, because of which he could not garland a statue of his father, former prime minister and Amethi MP Rajiv Gandhi, there.

While the district Congress party denied holding up the poster. He was given a warm welcome by UPCC President Raj Babbar, senior party leaders and hundreds of workers at the Amausi Airport in Lucknow from where he went by road to Amethi. Gandhi had visited more than 20 temples in Gujarat while campaigning and had come under BJP attack for his "newfound Hindu-ness" but Congress had defended him by calling him "janeu-dhari" Brahmin and rubbishing allegations of playing a soft-Hindutva card to counter BJP. "Rahul Gandhi should utilize his energy in the development work", Adityanath said.

"Two cases were registered against Deepak Singh and others at Salon police station here late last night. People are looking forward to welcome him", Singh said. On Monday it occurred at Salon.
