With polling in three States over, Congress star campaigners would now be concentrating on Uttar Pradesh with Priyanka Gandhi camping in twin constituencies of Rae Bareli and Amethi from February 3 to campaign for party candidates for coming assembly elections.

According to K L Sharma, a representative of her brother Rahul Gandhi, Ms. Priyanka would address “nukkar sabhas” (roadside meetings) and take part in road shows during her stay in Rae Bareli and Amethi.

As of now there was no information of Ms. Priyanka campaigning anywhere other than these two constituencies where polling is scheduled for February 15 and 19.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi would be kickstarting her campaign in UP with election meetings in Gonda and Deoria tomorrow.

Mr. Rahul Gandhi is already criss-crossing Uttar Pradesh with meetings in Sitapur, Faizabad and Barabanki today.

He would be holding meetings in Bahriach, Faizabad, Ambedkarnagar, Meerut, Varanasi, Jaunpur, Siddhartnagar, Sant Kabirnagar, Basti and Gonda among others in the next couple of days.
