Claiming that the position of Congress had improved in Uttar Pradesh, the party's star campaigner Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused the local administration in Rampur of not allowing him to campaign 'freely'.

During a road show in Rampur, a predominantly Muslim constituency, Gandhi said, "we have faced a lot of problems from the local administration. They are not letting us go everywhere or do everything we want to do. I am not happy about that."

There had been 'some improvement' in Congress' position in UP, he said, but added that there was much work to be done and there would be further improvement by the next election.

Congress' Begum Noor Bano is seeking re-election from Rampur, where she is challenged by one-time BJP MP Rajendra Sharma and actress Jaya Prada from the Samajwadi Party.
