Rahul Gandhi will kickstart congress campaign in Poll bound Assam from Shiv Sagar. He is going to address a rally and will also take stock of the party’s preparedness, ahead of the 2021 Assam Assembly Election.
Assam was under Congress rule for more than a decade until late chief minister Tarun Gogoi lost the elections to Sarabananda Sonowal in 2016, which saw the rise of BJP in the state. According to media reports Rahul Gandhi will start his campaign from Shiv Sagar by addressing a rally.
PM Modi had visited the state last week to launch the Assam Mala scheme which seeks to upgrade state highways and build medical infrastructure. He had also laid foundations for two medical colleges during his visit. This was the Prime Minister’s second visit to the Assam in the last two months and this will be Rahul’s first visit before the Assembly election in the state.
