Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav's wife and Kannauj MP Dimple Yadav, who is contesting again from the constituency, on Wednesday held a massive road show in the town.
Dimple Yadav, who arrived in Kannauj in the morning, started her five km-long road show from Rasoolabad to Mangalpur area in the town.
Clad in orange saree, she greeted the hundreds of Samajwadi Party, Rashtriya Lok Dal and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) workers who showered her with flower petals.
Hundreds of motorcycles and cars accompanied their modified bus chariot and the SUV and workers of both her party and its allies were out in force as Dimple Yadav, who is affectionately called 'bhabhiji' in the area, waved to the people.
Apart from slogans in her favour, there were also slogans that the fate of the state will also change as BSP supremo Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav have come together in these elections.
Dimple Yadav will again face the BJP's Subrat Pathak, whom she had defeated in 2014.
She had held a road show in the city along with actor turned politician Jaya Bachchan on April 6 after filing her nomination papers.
The SP is contesting 37 seats, the BSP 38 and Ajit Singh's Rashtriya Lok Dal three. The alliance is not fielding candidates in Amethi and Rae Bareli - held by Congress President Rahul Gandhi and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi respectively.
