LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in his new role as the Samajwadi Party national president will kick off his party's election campaign today from Sultanpur.

This will be the Chief Minister's first election rally in the state after he was coroneted as the head of the ruling party, replacing father Mulayam Singh Yadav, who has been made the Samajwadi Party patron. 

Five constituencies in Sultanpur district will go to polls in the fifth phase on February 27. 

Akhilesh earlier on Sunday released the “please all” Samajwadi Party manifesto with focus on women and youth empowerment and has been busy finalising list of candidates after forging an alliance with Congress “to keep communal forces at bay”. 

The poll process in Uttar Pradesh begins on February 11. 
73 constituencies in western Uttar Pradesh will go polls in this phase. The filing of nominations for these constituencies will end on January 24.
Uttar Pradesh is set to have a seven-phase polling between February 11 and March 8.
