Didn't say no to Rahul Gandhi's visit: Amethi DM

Rahul Gandhi may take over as Congress president soon after Diwali, says Sachin Pilot

Congress sources said Shah's visit has been planned as a counter to Rahul's September 25-27 campaign in poll-bound Gujarat which rattled the saffron party.

Responding to the letter senior Uttar Pradesh Congress leader Akhilesh Singh accused the Yogi government of deliberately trying to stop Rahul from visiting his own constituency.

"Rahul had proposed to visit Amethi from October 4-6".

A letter by the Amethi administration to the Congress district chief said, "In order to maintain law and order, a majority of the district police force will be on duty".

"The Uttar Pradesh government is anxious and does not want Rahul to visit Amethi, fearing that he might raise issues directly related to the public". Instead, the letter said, the member of parliament was apprised of the inconvenience being faced in maintaining law and order and providing him safety and security during the visit.

Rahul is now the vice-president of the Congress party, and his elevation as president, replacing mother Sonia, has been long speculated. "They have accepted their mistake after we raised the issue", Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.

Refuting the grounds on which the authorities have asked the Congress vice-president to reschedule his visit, Mr Singh told PTI that by October 4, nearly all the festivities would be over.

Uttar Pradesh Congress President Raj Babbar, however, slammed the decision, calling it an excuse.

With Congress reacting angrily to the DM's letter by calling it politically motivated and refusing to reschedule Rahul's visit, Kumar said the administration was ready for the local MP's trip as planned. Further attacking the Congress vice president Tripathi said that many promises made by Rahul are still incomplete.

"That is why, (Smriti) Irani has taken the initiative to start those projects in Amethi", said Tripathi. "It was only after we protested and put the matter before the media that the Amethi district administration gave permission", Singhvi said.

Though Mr Pilot did not name anyone for the post, but since Rahul Gandhi's name had been a constant for past three years now, it is likely that he will be the one who gets the post after Diwali this year.
