Rahul Gandhi & Co. Allowed Out Of Lucknow Airport


Lucknow: After security personnel briefly barred their way, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi along with his two-party members was allowed to leave Lucknow airport on Wednesday.

Gandhi was stopped from leaving the airport, hours after the Uttar Pradesh government ostensibly gave him permission to visit violence-hit Lakhimpur Kheri.

In a video shared by ANI, Gandhi can be seen pointing to a cordon of security personnel who he claimed are barring his way out of the airport.

“Show this scene… they (the UP government) said that we are free to go and now they are stopping us. What kind of permission is this? This is Uttar Pradesh government’s permission,” he told the media.

Reportedly, the Uttar Pradesh government, late on Tuesday night, denied permission to a Congress delegation led by Rahul Gandhi to visit Lakhimpur Kheri thereafter Sunday’s violence.
