Now It’s The Turn Of Rahul To Tour Southern States
New Delhi: All the parties swung into action for the coming general elections. While BJP president Amit Shah toured southern states in a bid to feel the pulse of the people and estimate prospects of the party, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi doesn’t want to be left behind. He would be visiting Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the first week of June, leading the opposition’s campaign against the Centre.
Congress which is relatively strong in the Southern States wants to counter BJP’s attempts to make inroads into these States. Arrangements are being made in a big way in Telangana.
Rahul will be visiting Telangana on June 1. The local Congress leaders are making massive arrangements to make this meet a big success. It is known that though the State was carved out under the Congress-led UPA regime, the party failed in taking advantage of it.
As part of his visit, the Congress vice president will address a rally at Sangareddy town and later will release a charge sheet of the failures of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government. TRS declared its support to NDA in Presidential elections.
From Telangana, Rahul will head to Chennai to attend the birthday celebrations of DMK supremo Karunanidhi on June 3. The Opposition has planned a massive show of strength on this occasion.
It is expected that all the top leaders from across opposition parties will attend this event.
They are likely to brainstorm on the Presidential election candidate and formulate a strategy for the same.
The next day, Rahul along with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Left leaders will address a public meeting in Guntur demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh.
According to sources, he might also visit Bhimavaram.
