Varanasi, May 10 IANS | 5 months ago

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Saturday held a roadshowhere in favour of party candidate Ajay Rai from the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency.


Rahul Gandhi reached the Babatpur airport in the state and then flew in a chopper to Varanasi city. His roadshow saw thousands of people lining both sides of the route in the city.

His cavalcade passed through many localities dominated by the minority. Rahul Gandhi was accompanied by senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Pramod Tiwari, Madhusudan Mistry and Mukul Wasnik.
