Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday postponed Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra, scheduled on 3 October, saying the dates would be announced later.
“I will lay the foundation stone of metro works in Kanpur on October 4. The date of yatra will be decided. Time has changed, now I will see from which ‘disha’ (direction) and time it should start,” he said.
On 14 September, Akhilesh had announced Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra — ‘Vikas se vijay ki ore’ through his Twitter handle with a picture in which he is seen sitting inside a bus.
