After Rahul Gandhi, it will be his sister Priyanka who will campaign for the Congress in Uttar Pradesh where assembly polls are being held in phases over next two months.

Though a detailed programme is yet to be finalised, party sources said the daughter of the Congress chief is expected to campaign across the state.

While Rahul is currently on a three-day road show in western Uttar Pradesh, the party is also expected to utilise the services of young leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia and Sachin Pilot to mobilise support for candidates.

Though both her children will be campaigning, President Sonia Gandhi will be the star campaigner in the crucial assembly polls in which the party is trying to turn the tide to become a major player in state politics in the post-poll scenario.
