Lucknow: In a first in the last one decade, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Wednesday reached his parliamentary constituency Amethi during voting.


Gandhi's visit comes as the going seemed to be getting tough for the incumbent MP, more so after the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi visited the family bastion and urged the people to shun dynastic politics and vote for development instead.

Gandhi reached the Fursatganj airstrip early morning and then went to be with his supporters.

He drove past many polling booths and personally saw to it that voters were having no difficulty in casting their votes.

He reluctantly interacted with reporters and told them that he had always been working to strengthen democracy in the country.
