Lucknow, Nov 17 (UNI) The Samajwadi Party (SP) on Wednesday announced the launch of party president Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Vijay Rath Yatra from Ghazipur to Lucknow on the Provincial Expressway.
According to a statement issued by the SP on Wednesday, party president Akhilesh Yadav will travel on the Provincial Expressway from Ghazipur to Lucknow. It may be recalled that on November 16, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 341 km long Provincial Expressway.

Akhilesh alleged that the BJP government at the Center and in Uttar Pradesh was changing the name and inaugurating the works started during the SP government.
The party said that the Vijay Rath Yatra led by Akhilesh would start from Ghazipur and reach Lucknow via Mao, Azamgarh, Ambedkar Nagar, Ajudhya, Sultanpur, Amethi and Bara Banki.
Before starting the Vijay Rath Yatra on the Provincial Expressway, Akhilesh will address a public meeting at Pakhanpur in Muhammadabad at 11 am in Ghazipur.
