New Delhi: A group of Samajwadi Party workers tried to breach the security cordon of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi who was addressing a rally at Khushi Nagar in Uttar Pradesh.

Following which a clash between the SP workers and Congress supporters broke out.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had said he was 'ready to give in writing' that Uttar Pradesh would be 'back on the development track within five years' and undergo a 'makeover' in 10 years if his party comes to power.'

Uttar Pradesh has shown way to the entire country, but your government has failed to even provide you with good roads, employment, drinking water, electricity and other amenities,' Gandhi told a public gathering in Maharajganj district, 300 km from here, on the last day of his mass contact programme.

'For the last 20 years, the state has been getting only a government that works on caste and religion basis,' he said.

 'Within five years, the country's backbone - Uttar Pradesh - would be brought back on the development track. And in 10 years, it would undergo such a makeover that the people of the state would themselves not recognise the state.'
