UP Polls: Sheila Begins Congress Campaign With Three-Day Bus Yatra
Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday flagged off a three-day bus yatra to Uttar Pradesh which is intended to inform people about the failures of successive non-Congress governments in the state.
The bus yatra, with the message ‘27 Saal, UP Behaal’, travelled through Ghaziabad and Hapur, and is also aiming to visit Amroha and Moradabad.
In the next two days, the bus will cover Rampur, Bareilly, Hardoi, Kannauj and Kanpur.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and other senior leaders including Sheila Dikshit, the party’s chief ministerial candidate for the 2017 assembly elections, and Raj Babbar, the newly-appointed state party chief, were present at the flag off.
The leaders can be seen being greeted enthusiastically in Ghaziabad and Hapur.
Senior leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Babbar and Dikshit will address public rallies during the bus yatra.
