By HT Correspondent | Apr 15, 2019 11:13 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address two poll rallies in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad and Aligarh on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi will be in Silchar in southern Assam on Sunday in her first campaign trip outside Uttar Pradesh.

Priyanka will hold a roadshow in Silchar, the constituency of Mahila Congress president Sushmita Dev who is battling both anti-incumbency and likely fallout of Congress’ opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) as she seeks another Lok Sabha term. Silchar in Barak Valley will vote in the second phase on April 18.
