Electioneering is going on across the country for the second phase of Lok Sabha elections.
Polling for the second phase will take place on Thursday. 97 constituencies, spread over 13 States and Union Territories, will go to polls in this phase.
Top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP Chief Amit Shah, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and BSP Chief Mayawati, are holding public meetings to garner support for their candidates.
Senior BJP leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said, the NDA government is committed to the development of all people.
Addressing Vijay Sankalp rally at Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh this afternoon, he said, government schemes are giving benefits to all under the principle of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas without any discrimination.
Applauding Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, the Prime Minister said that Babasaheb was a great economist, writer and social reformer.
Mr Modi said, it is due to the strength of Babasaheb’s Constitution that a man from a deprived and exploited class is President, a man from a farmer’s family is Vice President and a chaiwala is the PM.
Earlier, at a rally in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, Mr Modi said BJP is committed to settling Kashmiri Pandits at their native places in Kashmir and the work has started in this direction.
Meanwhile, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra held a roadshow at Silchar in Assam. This was her first campaign outside Uttar Pradesh for the General Elections. She was campaigning for the party candidate from the Silchar constituency.

The roadshow started from Silchar’s Cachhar club and culminated in the Rangirkhari area.
