This came a day after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Yadav abandoned a joint poll meeting in the Phulpur area of Prayagraj without delivering a speech as their supporters broke through barricades trying to reach the dais.

SP chief Akhilesh Yadav had reached Kharewa to address a public rally, seeking support for party candidate Daroga Prasad Saroj. As he started addressing the people, the crowd went uncontrollable due to which a stampede-like situation prevailed for some time.

A person at the rally said the cops used mild force to disperse the crowd. Yadav addressed the meeting after the situation came under control.

“This time, whatever strategy they (BJP) have made, the people of Uttar Pradesh have made up their mind to wipe them out,” said the SP chief.
