Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Congress today observed state-wide 'Jan Akrosh Divas' by holding a protest march against demonetisation in the absence of senior leaders who rushed to Delhi following a whip issued by the party high command to be present in Parliament.
In Lucknow, the Congress leader under the leadership of AICC secretary Avinash Pandey and UP legislator Akhilesh Pratap Singh led a march from the GPO to Shahid Smarak with thousands of Congress supporters raising slogans against the Narendra Modi government walking on the streets.
Earlier, UP Congress president Raj Babbar was slated to lead the march along with other senior leaders in respective districts. But due to whip issued by the party in the Rajya Sabha, Mr Babbar rushed to Delhi leaving aside the march.
