According to media reports, the leaders are expected to carry out a 12-kilometer long road show. It is also informed that after the road show the leaders are expected to interact with the party workers at the Congress office in the city.

Further report informed, the party office in the state has been revamped to welcome the newly-appointed general secretaries. Also, several rooms of the UPCC headquarters have been refurbished and a newly-built media hall will also be inaugurated by Priyanka.
