The yatra, which was started from four corners of the state, will reach here today and will stay for two-days before leaving for Rampur, and after travelling all 403 assembly constituencies, the four yatras will culminate in Lucknow on December 24.

Besides, eight compartments of PAC and paramilitary forces each will be deployed."
