However the things have not gone well in Assam State with Rahul Gandhi as he faces many difficulties there. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi expressed his confusion, asking why he was prevented from visiting the Batadrava Satra temple in Assam during the ongoing Rahul Gandhi Nyay Yatra.

The temple is significant as it is the birthplace of Srimanta Sankardeva, an Assamese saint and scholar from the 15th century. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had earlier urged Rahul Gandhi to reconsider his route for the yatra, expressing concerns about potential clashes with the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
