Lucknow: Congress General secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will flag-off the 3 'Pratigya Yatras' from Barabanki on Saturday, October 23. The yatras will be taken out from the day to November 1.
As per details derived from the source, the 'Pratigya Yatra' will start from Barabanki in the Bundelkhand region and will end at Jhansi via Lucknow, Unnao, Fatehpur, Chitrakoot, Banda, Hamirpur and Jalaun. Conversely, in the western Uttar Pradesh region, the yatra will start from Saharanpur and will move through Muzaffarnagar, Bijnor, Moradabad, Rampur, Bareilly, Badaun, Aligarh, Hathras, Agra and Mathura. In Avadh region, the yatra will start from Varanasi and will end at Rae Bareli via Chandauli, Sonbhadra, Mirzapur, Prayagraj, Pratapgarh and Amethi.
During these 'Pratigya Yatras', Priyanka will hold several meetings. Priyanka is likely to make announcements like women's reservation in education and jobs, free education for women, farmer's loan waiver and rebate in electricity rates during the yatras.
