Chandigarh: With the poll date approaching, the Congress is reaching out to the electorate in poll-bound states in a big way.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will address poll rallies in Amritsar and Ludhiana on Saturday. Punjab goes to polls on January 30. The Congress under former chief minister Amridner Singh is looking to wrest power from the Parkash Singh Badal headed SAD-BJP combine.
Interestingly, the Prime Minister had begun his New Year from Amritsar, when he along with his wife Gursharan Kaur paid obeisance at the Golden Temple on January one.
Meanwhile, party president Sonia Gandhi is concentrating on Uttarakhand where the Congress hopes to unseat the BJP government led by BC Khanduri. She will address a rally in Almoda today; last week she had campaigned in Roorkee.
On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi is continuing with his ‘Mission UP’. He would be campaigning in the Bundelkhnad region today.
