After their convoy was stopped on the Yamuna Expressway, Congress leaders Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rahul Gandhi are marching towards Hathras.
Both Congress leaders were greeted by Congress workers at the Delhi-UP border.
Meanwhile, the Uttar Police lathi-charged few Samajwadi Party workers on NH- 93. They were trying to reach the Dalit woman’s house.
