The two leaders will later address a rally in the politically crucial state which will see a seven-phase election for its 403 Assembly seats starting February 11.

* Modi didn't do anything for the youth and the farmers in the Budget: Rahul Gandhi in Agra

* Can anyone say that Narendra Modi gave them Rs 15 lakh as promised: Rahul Gandhi
