Curtains came down on high voltage campaigning for the fourth phase of polling for Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017, which was marked by offensive personal jibes. 53 Assembly constituencies spread over 12 districts will go polls on February 23. In this phase of polling Assembly segments in Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s Rae Bareli Lok Sabha constituency will be among those where the electoral exercise will take place.However, for the first time since 1998, Sonia gave campaigning a miss in her constituency. As many as 680 candidates will vie for entry to the Assembly. Other districts going to polls in this phase are Pratapgarh, Kaushambi, Allahabad, Jalaun, Jhansi, Lalitpur, Mahoba, Banda, Hamirpur, Chitrakoot and Fatehpur. Racing against time to reach to the maximum voters, BJP president Amit Shah and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav today held parallel roadshows in Allahabad. Campaigning for the fourth phase, polling for which will be held on Thursday, saw the leaders make personal attacks at each other.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi repeatedly targeted the SP-Congress alliance and the BSP, particularly their leaders Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, respectively. Akhilesh and Mayawati hit back at him.
