In the run-up to the final phase of polling in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi will address multiple rallies on Tuesday in a bid to woo voters.

The Prime Minister will hold public meetings at Ballia in Uttar Pradesh, Buxer and Sasaram in Bihar, and Chandigarh in Punjab, all of which will witness polling in the last phase of elections on May 19.

Meanwhile, Gandhi will be speaking at election meetings in Neemuch, Khandwa and Tarana districts of Madhya Pradesh. Polling in these regions will also be held in the final phase.

As campaigning for Lok Sabha polls has entered its last leg, political parties have stepped up their attack against each other in a bid to outdo one another.

The penultimate phase of election campaigning saw Modi hit out at Gandhi citing references of his late father Rajiv Gandhi, while Congress continued to question the Prime Minister and the BJP on job creation, demonetisation and alleged irregularities in the Rafale fighter jet deal.

Seven-phase elections began on April 11, and 59 Lok Sabha seats will vote in the final phase on May 19. Results will be announced on May 23.
