He had a road show on 40 km stretch from Amahat airport in Sultanpur to Gauriganj, the headquarter of Amethi district,out of which about 17 km is located in Sultanpur constituency.

The Congress No.2, accompanied by his mother Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka, her hubby Robert Vadra and Capt Satish Sharma, held a road show in Sultanpur as well as in his Amethi constituency.

Varun, the younger cousin of Rahul, who was elected from Pilibhit Lok Sabha seat in 2009, has switched to Sultanpur, which is adjacent to Amethi and near Rae Bareli constituency, represented by Sonia.

He is pitted against Congress nominee Amita Singh, wife of Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, who had won from the seat in 2009.
