Lucknow, March 15 (IANS) Bollywood star and Samajwadi Party candidate for the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat Sanjay Dutt continued with his election campaign in the state capital Sunday.
Dutt, accompanied by party general secretary Amar Singh, visited the Lal Baradari to attend a Holi Milan function and utilised the opportunity to again assert his links with the city.
Recalling that his father (Sunil Dutt) had started his career from Lucknow, Dutt said he wanted to assure people he too was a son of the soil.
The Baradari lawns were jam-packed and the roads surrounding the area were filled with people trying to catch a glimpse of Munnabhai.
After the function, Dutt was to visit the house of Banwari Lal Kanchal, the head of the SP’s traders cell, to hold a meeting with the traders, party’s district head Sharda Prasad Shukla told IANS.
Dutt was slated to visit the SP’s party office in the evening and hold a meeting with the party’s corporators and party workers, he said.
“Dutt will be taking part in similar functions in the city in the next two days also. However, Amar Singh will leave for Delhi tonight,” Shukla added.
According to party sources, Dutt is staying at Amar Singh’s house, named “Aishwarya” in the posh Gomti Nagar area of the state capital.
