Besides, he demanded better irrigation facilities.

However, Amethi District Magistrate Shakuntala Gautam said that the inauguration was stopped as the construction of road was incomplete.

Rahul, who began his three-day visit to Amethi and Raebareli in Uttar Pradesh earlier today, said while addressing a gathering, "Many people in India are farmers, if America's President says that China and Hindustan are the future of the world, it's only the farmers who have brought us to this position".

Rahul Gandhi will also lay the foundations of some development projects.

BJP district president Uma Shanker Singh said that the 5 kilometer Thori-Jagdishpur road was constructed by Narendra Modi hence it would be inaugurated by union minister Smriti Irani and not Rahul Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi reached Amethi on a two-day starting Monday.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi receives a warm welcome by Rajya Sabha Member Raj Babbar, state leaders and party workers at the Lucknow airport. He also spoke to farmers at Pali village and discussed their problems hile they were harvesting wheat in their fields. This would be the second visit of Mr Gandhi to Amethi after becoming the Congress president. These leaders raised slogans against the state leadership and protested their attitude. It is said that Ambareesh has distanced himself from active politics due to the sudden rise of former minister N Cheluvarayaswamy in the Congress. Nagamangala leader Cheluvarayaswamy, who had rebelled against JD (S) supremo HD Deve Gowda along with six other JD (S) MLAs, recently joined Congress in the presence of AICC president Rahul Gandhi. But some Congress leaders like MLA G. Chinna Reddy and others from the same district are welcoming Mr Reddy. In the afternoon, he will attend a meeting of district monitoring committee at Gauriganj.
