He said he had to attend an oath-taking ceremony at Allahabad university. When asked, Airport Director AK Sharma said, "I have no such information."

The matter rocked the Uttar Pradesh legislature.

As soon as Samajwadi Party members came to know about their national president being stopped at the airport, they tried to raise the matter during Question Hour in the assembly.

"The present regime is trying to kill democracy and stop our leader from visiting Allahabad," SP leader Narendra Verma said.

The members also trooped into the Well of the House due to which Speaker Hriday Narain Dixit adjourned the proceedings for 20 minutes during the Question Hour.

The matter was also raised in the Legislative Council, leading to the adjournment of the House for 25 minutes during the pre-lunch sitting.
