Sunday's polling a key challenge for Akhilesh Yadav

Sunday's polling a key challenge for Akhilesh Yadav

"She had celebrated "Rakshabandhan" with a BJP leader earlier and she can do it in the future also", Akhilesh said at an election rally in Unnao.

Mocking at the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance in UP, PM Modi said it was like a movie.

Launching a scathing attack on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is also Samajwadi Party (SP) president, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the SP's alliance with the Congress party in the state will shatter the dream of everyone in the state.

However, ducking all brickbats hurled at him, Akhilesh went ahead tom-tomming his development schemes and welfare measures.

"There are so many works of this kind which have led to frustration (among political rivals) and made their blood pressure rise", she said and asked as to what has been done by "buaji" (Mayawati) with the crowd answering back "elephants, elephants" (BSP symbol).

Her refrain was deterioration in law and order and plight of women who felt insecure.

After skipping constituencies falling in the first two phases, SP patron Mulayam Singh Yadav campaigned for brother Shivpal Singh and daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav, but preferred not to seek votes for others.

Sargento recalls cheese due to possible Listeria contamination
Included in the recall -- Sargento ultra thin Longhorn Colby and chef blends shredded nacho and taco cheese. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea.

That Modi chose to drive home the jibe in Yadav's family turf Kannauj that is a part of the Lok Sabha constituency Akhilesh's wife, Dimple, represents in the Indian Parliament, is central to the BJP's attack on the SP-Congress combine contesting together in the assembly polls for India's most populous state.

Akhilesh was referring to the BSP and the BJP forming coalition government in the past and Mayawati tying a rakhi on BJP leaders like Lalji Tandon.

SP leader Shivpal too is a key figure in this round.

This phase includes Etawah, the native place of SP patron Akhilesh Yadav and districts like Mainpuri, where Tej Pratap Yadav is an SP MP. A total of 2.41 crore voters will decide the fate of 826 candidates.

Scrutiny of nominations will be held today for the seventh and final phase.

Lucknow Cantt will go to polls in the third phase on February 19.
