Rahul, Akhilesh may share stage in Amethi today

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will be present at the laying ceremony of the state's first mega food park project, which is estimated to generate Rs 450 crore revenues and create 2,500 jobs, in Jagdishpur, Amethi.

Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav has also been invited for the same. Now, this would be interesting to see two not so famous friends sharing the dias.

The CM's office has yet not confirmed that the young Samajwadi Party leader will attend the ceremony. But, with Yadav’s proclaimed thrust on the food-processing sector, it is quite likely that he would attend the event.

Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Processing Charan Das Mahant would be the guest of honour and Kumar Mangalam Birla Chairman of Aditya Birla Nuvo would preside over the ceremony.

Both young leaders were involved in a high-decibel poll battle last year as they led their respective parties' poll campaigns in the state.
