Rahul Gandhi outwits administration, meets agitators
A local resident, who met Rahul Gandhi during his visit to Parsaul, said that Congress general secretary had offered to help and he looked upset with action taken by UP government. The Congress leader also listened about the entire incident.
WITH POLITICAL heat in Uttar Pradesh rising over farmers' agitation in Noida and nearby districts, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi made a dramatic entry into Bhatta and Parsaul villages, which witnessed violent clashes on Saturday.
 
Catching the district administration unaware on Wednesday morning, Rahul hopped on a motorcycle after his cavalcade was stopped by officials and reached Parsaul village, where he had an interaction with local farmers. This village was the sight of a violent clash between the police and farmers in which four people were killed including two cops.
 
Later, Rahul Gandhi also visited Bhatta and Acchepur villages, which have also witnessed violent clashes over the land acquisition issue. The farmers are in no mood to listen to the administration, they feel that land is being acquired to satisfy corporate interests. 
 
It was only after the district administration came to know about Rahul Gandhi's visit that they acted and stopped his cavalcade at Pari Chowk. Officials said that Gandhi had entered Greater Noida via Dadri-Surajpur road, thus giving police officials a slip. He however managed to outwit the administration and reached the three villages on a motorcycle along with some of his supporters.

 
The administration has invoked section 144 in Gautambudh Nagar district and prevented all politicians from entering the area due to prevailing tension.
 
Meanwhile, farmers in the area have decided not to sell their land and also to launch a campaign to get back the acquired land.
