Rahul-Akhilesh hit Varanasi roads, Dimple joins
Varanasi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday took out a road show in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi.
Akhilesh Yadav was wearing a cap of the red colour that has become symbolic of the Samajwadi Party, while Rahul Gandhi donned a stole in tri-colour.
Yadav’s wife and Kannauj MP Dimple Yadav also joined the two, as thousands of supporters waved the red-green flag of the SP and tri-colour flags with hand symbol of Congress.
As the road show proceeded, the supporters cheered, showered flowers and shouted slogans.
The road show came on a day when Modi also held a road show in the city ahead of the March 8 final phase of polls, with thousands joining in support.
