Lucknow, Jan 11 (Agencies): Protests over runaway inflation, corruption and other issues marked the second and last day of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's visit to Uttar Pradesh during which he held interactive sessions with students.

Activists of Left groups chanted slogans against price spiral and corruption outside the venue of youth leader's interactive session with students here this morning.

As soon as the session was over and Gandhi's cavalcade started moving out of the venue, workers of the All India Students Association and Inqalibi Naujawan Sabha, carryin banners, raised slogans.

They were chased away by the police.

AISA in-charge Sudhanshu Bajpai and the state head of the Inqalabi Navjawan Sabha, Bal Mukund Dhuriya, said they were protesting against numerous scams and skyrocketing prices of essential commodities.

Instead of this "interactive drama", the need of the hour, they said, was to provide employment to youths.

Students, who could not make it to the intereractive session, organised by the NSUI, also staged a protest.

"We want to meet the young leader to seek his help in solving our problems but the police have denied us this opportunity," they said.

In Jhansi, Bundelkhand Mukti Morcha workers protested outside Congress general secretary's venue of the interactive session.

Carrying placards, they demanded a separate Bundelkhand state to be carved out of Uttar Pradesh.

They accused the Congress of delaying the formation of the new state.

At the Jivan Sahay tri-section in Jhansi, members of the Rashtriya Ulema Council tried to show black flags as the Congress leader arrived.

ABVP activists raised slogans against corruption at the Elite crossing in the city though the place was nowhere near the venue of Gandhi's programme.

Yesterday in Allahabad, Samajwadi Party's youth wing activists tried to stop his car and clamber on to the vehicle when he was on his way to the ancestrial house of the Nehrus.
