Goa 2017

Campaign ends; Punjab, Goa ready for polls

The high-voltage campaign for the February 4 elections in Punjab and Goa came to an end on Thursday evening after hectic canvassing by various political parties. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi wrapped up his campaign in Punjab during which he kept up the offensive against the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-BJP combine and other rivals who gave back in equal measure. The SAD-BJP combine is up against the Congress and the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party. The electioneering ended peacefully in Goa. Several star campaigners of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spoke at gatherings.
