History seems to repeat itself. On Wednesday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi addressed the people of Mirzapur through a Khaat Sabha, which however, turned like his previous meet in Deoria and Ambedkar nagar. As soon as the address was over, people started running away with the cots, in spite of the announcement discouraging them to do so.

While many were running with wooden cots in their hands, some expressed their displeasure about not getting one. This was the third such incident in Rahul Gandhi’s ongoing Kisan Yatra meant to strengthen the Congress in the run-up to the legislative polls early next year. The first took place at Rudrapur assembly constituency in Deoria district, from where the Delhi-bound Kisan Yatra started on September 6.

Rahul is currently leading a 2,500 km-long Kisan Yatra in UP in a bid to boost the party’s vote count. The ‘Deoria to Dilli yatra’, which started from Panchlari Kritpura village, was marked by a door-to-door campaign of collecting ‘Kisan Mangpatras’ (charters of farmers demands), one-to-one interaction with farmers through Khaat (cot) Sabhas, a concept similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Chai par Charcha’ during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, and roadside meetings.
