New Delhi, 1 October(Wishav Warta): The Amethi district Administration on Sunday urged Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to postpone his visit to his Lok Sabha constituency on law-and-order grounds, drawing flak from the opposition party. Rahul is scheduled to visit Amethi from October 4-6.
“In order to maintain law-and-order, a majority of the district police force will be on duty. Hence, there will be great inconvenience in maintaining peace. Therefore, it is requested that the tour be re-scheduled on any date after October 5,” a letter written by the Amethi administration to the district Congress chief said. The letter, signed by District Magistrate Yogesh Kumar and Superintendent of Police Poonam, added, “Through a letter (dated September 30), it was informed that a visit of MP Rahul Gandhi is proposed from October 4 to October 6. However, on October 5, Durga Puja/Dussehra and Muharram will culminate at several places.”
