There is a heavy deployment of forces and a huge gathering outside the residence that the leaders are visiting. 

The UP government on Wednesday allowed Rahul and Priyanka to visit Lakhimpur Kheri after initially blocking attempts by opposition leaders to reach the district.

Rahul Gandhi first went to Sitapur, where his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was lodged since her arrest. The Congress leaders then left from Sitapur for violence hit Lakhimpur.
