Congress President Rahul Gandhi will begin his campaigning for poll-bound Madhya Pradesh by holding a roadshow in Bhopal on Monday and later address around 15,000 office-bearers of the party.
Gandhi would start the campaigning with a roadshow next week which will commence from Lalghati and conclude at BHEL Dussehra Maidan.
Gandhi will arrive at the Raja Bhoj Airport in Bhopal around 12.45 pm on September 17, she said.
“He will then head to Lalghati Square, from where he would start the roadshow. It will pass through the old city areas, including Royal Market and Peer Gate, before reaching BHEL Dussehra Maidan via New Market,” Madhya Pradesh Congress Media Cell chairperson Shobha Oza said.
She said Gandhi would address and interact with the office-bearers of the party at BHEL Dussehra Maidan.
“About 15,000 office-bearers would attend the programme. Party workers can also meet him during the roadshow,” she added.
On September 18, Gandhi will travel to Andhra Pradesh’s Kurnool while on September 20, it will travel to Rajasthan’s Dungarpur and will address the tribal community of the region. The party has estimated that nearly three lakh people are scheduled to attend this event in the state.
MPCC President Nath had earlier announced that the party was working on the list of the first set of candidates on 80 seats.
The party has proposed to carry out a “Ram Van Gaman Path Yatra” to retrace the mythical journey of Lord Ram during his exile. Meanwhile, the Congress’ MP unit in a social media ad featuring senior party leader Kamal Nath said that if they are voted to power, the party will construct over 23,000 gaushalas in the state.
