Elections 2014: Ahead of Narendra Modi's Visit, Rahul Gandhi Holds Roadshow in Amethi

Amethi:  In Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's roadshow today in family pocket borough Amethi, a huge crowd chanted slogans praising the Congress vice-president who has been representing the constituency for the past 10 years.

A large number of Congress supporters gathered to catch a glimpse of both Ms Vadra and Mr Gandhi who is pitted against BJP's Smriti Irani and AAP's Kumar Vishwas in the May 7 Lok Sabha battle for Amethi seat.

The vehicle carrying them moved slowly as the huge crowd waved Congress flags and shouted slogans eulogising Mr Gandhi. Some enthusiastic supporters showered rose petals at them.

The 2km roadshow by the Gandhi scion comes on the eve of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's campaign in Amethi in support of Smriti Irani.

This was the second roadshow by Mr Gandhi and Ms Vadra in the constituency. Mr Gandhi, accompanied by his mother and party president Sonia Gandhi as well as Ms Vadra, staged a roadshow ahead of filing his nomination for the constituency on April 12.

Ms Vadra who had campaigned for Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli which went on polls on April 30, has been aggressively seeking support for her brother.
