On the second day of his visit to Amethi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi conducted a "janata darbar" at the Munshirganj guest house in his parliamentary constituency, Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.
With determination to defeat PM Modi, Gandhi heard people's grievances and promised to provide solutions, ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
He assured financial aid to a mother for the treatment of her ailing son.
According to spokesperson Akhilesh Pratap Singh, it is a festive occasion as it wasn't just their MP who was visiting, "but the upcoming prime minister" as well.
The welcome was enthusiastic, but a poster ended up creating controversy: Rahul Gandhi as Lord Ram pointing arrows at 'Raavan' Narendra Modi.

Jha's name had recently emerged as one of the partymen who donated land to RJD chief Lalu Prasad.
