PM Manmohan Singh will start his campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls from Kanpur, a city which has proven lucky for him in the General Elections of 2004 and 2009. Singh will start his campaign from the Motijheel Grounds. The Prime Minister hopes to be third-time lucky as he kicks off his campaign for the ten Congress candidates.
Barely an hour after the PM’s rally, SP'>BSP supremo Mayawati is scheduled to address a meeting in the city. SP'>BSP supremo Mayawati’s rally is scheduled at 3 PM just after the PM’s rally. The rallies of the Prime Minister and UP Chief Minister scheduled barely an hour within each other has certainly increased the workload of the administration here, but officials say they will spare no effort in organising the two high-profile events.
