Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav will hold a joint road show in Lucknow on Sunday. This would be the maiden outing of the two leaders since the Congress and SP have stitched up an electoral alliance for the state assembly polls starting from February 11.
Gandhi and Akhilesh would launch a poll campaign with a tagline — UP ko ye saath pasand hai (UP relishes this alliance), aimed at telling people that the two parties were their choice as they go to vote.
The two sides are looking forward to gauge the minds of the people towards their coming together. A joint press conference would also be held.
While the Special Protection Group (SPG) that guards the Gandhi scion has been assessing the route that the road show will take, a nod from the Election Commission is also awaited.
