Lucknow: Just ahead of the third phase of polling in Uttar Pradesh, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi and star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi for the first time ever will share the stage in a rally at Sultanpur on Sunday.

Apart from the presence of the brother –sister duo at the rally in Sultanpur, the region is considered vital for the Congress as it has never earned significant number of votes here earlier.

While Priyanka Gandhi began her election campaign from Rae Bareli and Amethi, Rahul started his journey three months back to pave the way for Congress victory in the elections.

Time will tell whether the charisma of the brother-sister duo will woo the voters in the state or not. But as of now large numbers of supporters are expected to turn up for the rally.

Voters will cast their votes for 56 seats spread over ten districts in the third phase of the Uttar Pradesh assembly election. After the high turnout of the voters during the first two phases of polling, the turnout is expected to be over 60 percent for the third phase.
