Lok Sabha Elections: All the political parties — national and regional — have stepped up their campaign with just six more phases of polling left to decide the fate of next government. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, party general secretaries Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Jyotiraditya Scindia held joint rallies at various places in Uttar Pradesh. Uttar Pradesh Congress president Raj Babbar is the party’s candidate from Fatehpur Sikri. All three seats will go to polls on April 18.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also be in Amethi on a two-day visit starting today, where Rahul Gandhi is up against Union minister Smriti Irani. The party’s Amethi unit said that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will reach the constituency this evening. She is scheduled to hold a number of meetings with party workers and undertake a tour of the area to take stock of the situation.
