LUCKNOW: On Tuesday, Ink was allegedly thrown at former Jawaharlal Nehru student Kanhaiya Kumar. The incident took place in the office of the Congress party in Lucknow. The ink was thrown at Kumar when he reached there to participate in the nomination of Congress candidate for Lucknow Central seat, Sadaf Zafar.

Congress leaders claimed that it was not ink but a kind of acid which was thrown at Kumar, who was in the city to campaign for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

"The accused tried to throw acid at Kanhaiya Kumar but failed to do so. However, some drops fell on 3-4 youth standing nearby," leaders said.

Kumar had reached to do door-to-door campaigning to seek votes for the Congress candidates in Lucknow.

 

He said that under the leadership of party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the state Assembly elections are going to be big.

 

Political activities are at peak in the state regarding the assembly elections to be held in UP. It is the effort of all the parties to win maximum number of seats and try to form the government. At the same time, the Election Commission is also trying its best for free and fair voting. Voting will be held in the state in seven phases and the counting of votes will take place on March 10.
