In a bid to reinvigorate Congress and end its 27-year exile from power in the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly polls, Rahul Gandhi is making all efforts to inject new blood into the party.

About 2,000 khaats (cots) have been arranged for the one-to-one interaction with farmers sitting on the Khaat.

Gandhi will also hold road shows at various places during the 2500 km-long Kisan Yatra from Deoria on Tuesday. On the first two days, Gandhi will cover Kushinagar, Gorakhpur, Sant Kabirnagar, and Basti besides Deoria.
