New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
will address an election rally in Kanpur, his first in Uttar
Pradesh assembly poll.
Singh will begin his campaign from Motijheel grounds
hoping that like the previous two elections, the city will
once again prove lucky for the party like it did in the
Lok Sabha elections of 2004 and 2009.

centre of revenue-generation. The industrial city also has a
sizable Sikh population.
There are 10 Congress candidates in the district.
Barely a hour after the PM`s rally, BSP supremo Mayawati
is scheduled to address a meeting in the city.
