Rahul Gandhi began his campaign for Uttar Pradesh (UP) Assembly elections coming up next year, from Deoria. In a unique gesture, he addressed a 'Khaat Sabha,' a.k.a Panchayat meet. A number of wooden, coir cots were arranged for the purpose. As soon as the Congress Vice-President left, chaos prevailed at the venue, with the villagers scrambling to take the Khaats. Each one was seen carrying the Khaats (cots) away.
