As the race to polls moves ahead at full steam, we bring you top highlights of the day. Catch all the developments related to the elections at one place. Here are the UPDATES:-


Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday said the Constitution is not respected and an attempt is being made to destroy it, attacking  BJP while addressing a rally.

Holding a roadshow in Silchar in support of Congress candidate and sitting MP Sushmita Dev, she also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has toured the world over, but hardly spent time in his own constituency in Varanasi.


The BJP Sunday declared candidates for three more Lok Sabha constituencies in Madhya  Pradesh, dropping two sitting MPs.

Suspense, however, continued for prominent seats like Bhopal, Vidisha and Indore.


Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) announced its fourth list of candidates for 16 parliamentary constituencies of Uttar Pradesh.

BSP has fielded Afzal Ansari, brother of jailed strongman-politician Mukhtar Ansari from Ghazipur constituency. Afzal will contest opposite union minister and BJP leader Manoj Sinha.


 Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to hold public rallies in Uttar Pradesh's Aligarh and Moradabad cities on Sunday.


 The Congress Saturday announced names of nine more Lok Sabha candidates for Uttar Pradesh, which included R K Chaudhary, Raj Kishore Singh and Ramakant Yadav, all of whom joined the party recently.

The Congress has also fielded Raj Kishore Singh from Basti and Ramakant Yadav from Bhadohi seats. Both had joined the party on Friday.
