The message was communicated to district Congress leaders late Thursday night by a phone call from Rahul Gandhi's New Delhi office.

A later date is being worked out. After stitching together a poll alliance between the Samajawdi Party (SP) and Congress for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the two leaders have taken out well-attended road shows in Lucknow, Kanpur and Agra.
