UP Elections 2017: Amidst Allahabad heat, Gandhi-Yadav and Shah draw crowdsThe Election fever in the state of Uttar Pradesh is at its peak. Right from the Bhartiya Janta Party’s Amit Shah to Congress and Samajwadi Party’s Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav are leaving no stone unturned in bringing in voters to their side.

While the election heat has been on for quite a while now, weather gods have also decided to bring in some heat in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Allahabad has been witnessing above normal temperatures for the past few days. However, this did not stop Amit Shah and company to stop campaigning. In fact, Rahul Gandhi along with his new found BFF Akhilesh Yadav was also present in Allahabad yesterday.

The lanes of Allahabad were filled with women in orange sarees and leading the gang was BJP president, Amit Shah. The point to be noted is that just a few metres away, newbie bros; Gandhi and Yadav were also hosting a road show.

Amit Shah’s ride was flocked with orange coloured marigold strings while a younger crowd was seen around Akhilesh’s trucl. Slogans of UP ko Akhilesh pasand hai set the political tone while har Har Modi and Jai Shri Ram chants were all over the streets.

The fourth phase of the UP Elections is to be held tomorrow and just two days before that, both the parties tried their best to make the tables turn in Allahabad. There are 12 assembly seats in Allahabad and the new alliance is trying to gather the Yadav and Muslim vote.

Nevertheless, temperatures will continue to remain above normal even tomorrow in the city of Allahabad. Hopefully, it should not affect the voter turnout tomorrow.
