In an informal chat with news persons, Vadra said that he is lending support as a family member to take forward Rahul's message, though both Rahul and Priyanka do not require any help as can be seen.

"I have come to share and take Rahul's message to villages and every corner", he said.

To a question whether it was time for Rahul to become the prime minister, he said that he could not speak on the issue. Priyanka who has been here since the past February 3 would be addressing about 20 meetings all over the constituency today before she is expected to leave later in the day.

According to Congress sources, Rahul Gandhi is also scheduled to address three meetings on February 11 in Sultanpur, Gauriganj and Rae Bareli assembly constituencies, where polling is scheduled for February 15.
