Senior Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav were rushed out of a rally in Prayagraj after a ruckus broke out in the public, leading to security threats for the political leaders. The INDIA bloc partners, who were scheduled to address a public meeting at Padila in Phulpur Parliamentary constituency of Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh, were escorted out of the event after stampede-like conditions arose at the rally.

As per the reports, a commotion broke out between Congress and Samajwadi Party workers, many attempting to approach the stage. Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav tried their luck in managing the crowd and asking the people to calm down, but as the situation deteriorated, their security recommended that they leave.

The videos from the rally site depicted broken barricades and a swelling crowd.

 

Afterward, when Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav reached Mungari in the Karachhana area of Prayagraj for the second rally, they faced a similar situation. The crowd became too excited after seeing the leaders and attempted to reach the stage by breaking the police barricades.
