Gandhi will start the roadshow from the Gol Gadda Chauraha and it is expected to culminate at Lanka in Varanasi city.

As per his official programme, the Congress vice-president would be addressing a meeting later at Sathwan, in Chiraigaon block of Varanasi District.

The decision about the roadshow in Varanasi was taken after Modi broke the unwritten code and held a rally in Rahul Gandhi's Lok Sabha constituency Amethi on May 5 and targeted the Gandhi family.

Gandhi's roadshow is being seen as a way of getting back at Modi as generally no top political leader campaigns in the political backyard of a top rival.
