Luc­know: On Mon­day, when Priyanka Gandhi Vadra gets onto the makeshift rath for her de­but road­show in Luc­know, amid fan­fare by Congress sup­port­ers, she will ac­com­pa­nied by her brother and party’s na­tional pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi.

This was con­firmed by Ut­tar Pradesh Congress Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Raj Bab­bar. This is the first time that the sib­lings would travel to­gether in pub­lic for a political rally in Luc­know.

Since the an­nounce­ment of Priyanka’s ar­rival, there is 24hour ac­tiv­ity on the UP UP Congress of­fice premises. In­side, big­wigs in­clud­ing ex-Ut­tarak­hand CM Har­ish Rawat,exUPA min­is­ter Mukul Was­nik, PL Pu­nia, Ra­jiv Shukla, Jitin Prasada and Pramod Te­wari held a closed-door meet­ing with UP Congress pres­i­dent Raj Bab­bar. The Luc­know dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion sought to dis­pel the fear ex­pressed by Congress party sup­port­ers that their per­mis­sion for the road­show was be­ing with­held.
