Nalhati: Union minister Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday held roadshows in Nalhati constituency where his son
Abhijit is the Congress candidate for the upcoming West Bengal
Assembly elections.



Seated in an open jeep with his son and daughter-in-
law Chitralekha, the Union finance minister started his
roadshow from Mahabir Tala to Nalateswari Mandir.



People in large numbers lined on the road to cheer the
father-son duo. The procession went to Kurungram, a nearby
village, and stayed there for sometime.
Neither Pranab nor his son gave any speech except for
the senior Congress leader thanking the crowd for accompanying
them.
"I may not be able to come here before the election
because of my preoccupation, and therefore I extend my Durga
puja greetings to you in advance," Pranab said before
departing for neighbouring Murshidabad district where he is
scheduled to address an election meeting later.
