Arriving in his parliamentary constituency after nearly a month on Tuesday, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, who was on a short "non-political" visit, had to face angry protesters who demanded action against Pakistan for the brutal killings of two Indian soldiers.
As Rahul left Fursatganj airport, his cavalcade was stopped by protesters, mostly youth, who were angry with the brutal killings of two Indian soldiers by Pakistan. Rahul listened to them patiently and assured them of appropriate action.
Rahul then attended a meeting with officials of Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust (RGCT) for nearly an hour in Amethi and next attended a meeting of the Rajiv Gandhi Mahila Vikas Pariyojna (RGMVP), RGCT's flagship programme, in Jawahar Navodaya Vidalaya in Amethi's Gauriganj area, where nearly 2,000 women participated.
He raised the issue of brutal killings of the jawans in the meet and asked the women for their opinion. "Some women said since Pakistan took two, now we should take 12," a source said. Rahul told them that efforts were on to resolve the issue peacefully. "We do not act in hatred or out of envy," Rahul replied.
