“Who are you to arrange my transport? I want to leave in my car,” the Congress leader, accompanied by the Chief Ministers of Punjab and Chhattisgarh, said.
When he was stopped from leaving, he sat within the airport.
“They are not letting me leave the airport. See this – what kind of permission is this? See the state of the UP government’s ‘permission’. I want to leave the airport but they are not allowing me to leave. Yeh scene dikhao acchhi tarah (show this scene properly),” Rahul Gandhi said, turning to the media.
Earlier today, the UP administration allowed Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (detained since Monday), to visit Lakhimpur Kheri to meet the families of farmers run over on Sunday during a protest against a Union Minister’s visit.
