Congress President Sonia Gandhi is likely to campaign for party candidates on seats falling under Rae Bareli Lok Sabha constituency for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections while daughter Priyanka is likely to canvas for the nominees in Amethi. According to sources, Sonia who has been indisposed for some time and has not been active in handling party work for a few months now, is all set to campaign in Uttar Pradesh but will restrict herself to Rae Bareli. Ending speculation on whether she will campaign in Uttar Pradesh after Congress forged a pre-poll alliance with Samajwadi Party in the state, Sonia reportedly confirmed that she will campaign in her Rae Bareli constituency. Sources added that while both Sonia and Priyanka will campaign in Rae Bareli and Amethi, their schedule has not yet been finalised.

Sonia did not campaign in Punjab and Goa and is yet to canvas in Uttarakhand.

Amethi and Rae Bareli go to polls in the 4th and 5th phase of polling in the state on February 23 and 27.

There are 10 assembly seats in Amethi and Rae Bareli in the Gandhi family’s pocket-borough and have become a bone of contention between the two partners.
