Bareilly: In a bid to garner support for his party, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi held a road show in Bareilly on Tuesday that received a mixed response.

The mood of the people in some places was electrifying as they jumped on roof tops of shops, houses and even trees to capture the glimpse of the Amethi MP. Whereas, at some places he met with stiff resistance and was shown black flags.

Rahul reached the Trishul airport in Bareilly at 10:30 AM and flagged off his road show at around 11:00 AM. The road show covered nearly 18 km and passed through areas like Satellite Bus station, Shymat Ganj, Roadways, Choupla, Police Line, Chowki Chauraha, Cantonment and then proceeded to helipad at Air Force station.

A fleet of vehicles, partymen and supporters on two-wheelers and four-wheelers joined Rahul in the road show. The party workers wanted to take the road show to other areas as well but were denied permission by the district administration.

Bareilly's mayor, Supriya Aron who is contesting from Bareilly also accompanied Rahul Gandhi in the road show.
