The streets of Varanasi transformed into a sea of red as Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi descended upon the holy city to hold a grand roadshow ahead of the seventh and final phase of polling to the state assembly. With music playing, slogans and caricatures of the leaders, it was altogether a very vibrant show.
This SP-Congress roadshow comes during the 6th phase of the Uttar Pradesh elections. Varanasi, however, goes to the polls on March 8 – the seventh and last phase of Uttar Pradesh assembly election.
