Some tense moments were witnessed in Baghra on Sunday when supporters of the Congress and Ajit Singh-led RLD came face-to-face during the roadshow of Amethi MP Rahul Gandhi.

Rahul arrived in this nondescript town this afternoon during the third leg of his roadshow in Uttar Pradesh and his helicopter landed at a pad built 100 metres away from the venue of a rally addressed by rival RLD chief Ajit Singh.

The Congress leader immediately headed for the Aaliya Babul Havaiz dargah next to the rally's venue and spent some time there.

As he was coming out of the dargah, some RLD workers at the rally went up to him and chatted with him.

Standing atop a jeep, Rahul started waving at the people and gestured to them to join him.

In his characteristic style, Rahul freely mingled with people, shook their hands and chatted with them, giving his Special Protection Group (SPG) bodyguards a tough time.
