Thousands lined up, in allahabad on the roadsides to catch a glimpse of the Rahul Gandhi, who spent Wednesday night at Anand Bhawan, the ancestral home of the Nehru-Gandhi family.
The Congress leader earlier started the road show after garlanding a statue of Chandrashekhar Azad.
After this he went to Swaraj Bhawan where overzealous party workers and supporters raised slogans in favour of the Congress party.
The entourage then left for the Hindi hostel after which it reached the fore brigade square.
Rahul Gandhi is later scheduled to garland the statue of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Hemwati Nandan Bahugun and address a public rally at Chowk.
Akhilesh recently removed the state's Chief Secretary, who was considered close to his uncle Shivpal Yadav, on charges of corruption, leading to chain of unpleasant developments in the ruling family clan.
Taking on ruling, contending that Akhilesh government had performed badly, he said, "here one does not need to worry while touching a damaged electricity cable since no current flows through these."
He said, Samajwadi Party chief, "why Mulayam Singh Yadav maintains a studied silence whenever the opposition parties launch an attack against the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre".
The Congress leader also targeted the Narendra Modi government, accusing it of having "betrayed" people on the promises made during elections and providing benefits to big businessmen while ignoring the needs of farmers and jobless youths.
Gandhi said the Modi government has waived loans to the tune of Rs 1.1 lakh crore of big business houses.
When we were in power, the Manmohan Singh government had waived Rs 74,000 crore for debt-ridden farmers. This reflects our priorities as well as those of the ruling BJP, he said.
