If it was the delay in construction of an overbridge which led residents of Chitkapur and Radheypur villages to raise slogans before Munshiganj guest house, where the Amethi MP has put up, earlier in the day, activists of Bhartiya Kisan Union (women wing) protested outside the party workers' meeting in Jamo area later against shifting of army's branch recruitment office.
A group 35 to 40 people led by the village head Girish Chand Misra wanted to meet Rahul in connection with the long pending demand of an overbridge near Amethi railway station and raised anti-Rahul slogans when denied entry.
On the mediation of the local Congress leaders and administrative officials, they were, however, allowed to meet Rahul and were given an assurance that it would be taken up soon. According to sources, Rahul questioned his staff as to why the project has not been taken up yet.
