Chandigarh: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi tried to gain the maximum advantage of the last campaigning day for the Punjab assembly elections on Thursday. The Congress VP shared a meal of 'dal-subzi' with villagers and interacted with them in Sangrur district of the state in order to attract maximum number villagers.

Gandhi was dressed in blue denims, white kurta and a half jacket and ate his food sitting on a wooden cot, flanked by the village headman and council members while interacting with the residents of Baliyan village.

He also shared a traditional meal with commoners and party leaders at the 'Sanjha Chulha' (common kitchen) put up by the villagers to welcome the leader. The Congress Vice President sat on the floor with a number of village elders, women, youth, including girls and was served the lentils and vegetables from steel buckets along with rotis (chapati).

The 'Yuvraj' of the Gandhi family also took the opportunity to urge them to vote for the party to form the next government in the state saying the Congress cared for their needs and problems. "Do not fall into the trap of parties which are allied with radical elements," he said.

It is worth mentioning that campaigning in the state will end at 1700 hours on Thursday and the state will go to polls for the 117 assembly seats on February 4.
