Assam Assembly election: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra begins campaign


Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is expected to visit several districts on the north bank of the Brahmaputra river, where the BJP and its ally, the AGP, are understood to have a strong presence. The BJP-led government has announced several development projects in view of the upcoming elections.

New Delhi: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will commence her two-day visit to poll-bound Assam from Monday (March 1) to campaign for the Congress party. In her first stop, the Congress general secretary will arrive at Guwahati, where she will visit the Kamakhya temple to offer prayers on behalf of the party, and then will fly to Lakhimpur to start the poll campaign.

Since the Upper Assam region had witnessed strong protests during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act movement, Congress banks on public resentment against the law. Her visit is expected to give momentum to her party’s campaign as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already visited the region thrice.

Priyanka is expected to visit several districts on the north bank of the Brahmaputra river, where the BJP and its ally, the AGP, are understood to have a strong presence. The BJP-led government has announced several development projects in view of the upcoming elections.

She is expected to launch an indoor-protest for unemployed youths in Lakhimpur besides visiting two shrines – Mahadev’s Janmasthan in Letekupukhuri and Madhabdev’s Janmasthan in Rangajan, Bihpuria. The Congress general secretary will reportedly hold a meeting with women labourers in Gohpur after paying homage to Majabhairav temple in Tezpur.
