A day after her son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination from Amethi, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi kicked-off her roadshow here before filing her nomination papers for the Lok Sabha elections.
Sonia Gandhi, who left from the Bhuyemau guest house at around 11.45 a.m., first performed a 'havan' near the Mohan Singh Netralaya.
She started her roadshow with Rahul Gandhi, daughter and the party's General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, son-in-law Robert Vadra along with grand-children Rehan and Mariya from Hathi Chowk to the Collectorate's Office.
Thousands of Congress supporters and workers raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government during the roadshow. They also carried placards highlighting the Congress' NYAY scheme that promises Rs 6,000 per month to poor families.
Elections in Rae Bareli are scheduled in the fifth phase on May 6. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
