On the seventh day of Rahul Gandhi's 'Kisan Yatra' in Uttar Pradesh, aimed to strengthen Congress' position in the state before the Assembly Polls.

However, the people in attendance seemed to be interested in more in the cots than Rahul's speech and were seen running away with them after the rally ended.

As a matter of fact, a few villagers were also disappointed that they did not find a 'Khaat' to take home.

While this happened, there were announcements of 'Khaat Chodke Chale Jao' but people paid no attention.

The first public meeting of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in Deoria as part of his 2,500 km journey, aimed to cover 223 of Uttar Pradesh's 403 Assembly constituencies resulted in a fiasco when the locals indulged into a fight for the brand new khatiyas (wooden cots) after his Khat Sabha in Deoria ended.

It started with a free for all as the locals pounced on the eatables and bottled water that were stored in a tent. A few people then picked up some cots and the crowd followed the suit. Within no time, only a few cots were left, that too because they were made of iron and too heavy to lift.
