Congress President Rahul Gandhi is rolling up his sleeves to woo electorates in Telangana in the run-up to the December 7 Assembly elections in the state, according to party sources. In his first visit to the state after the Election Commission announced the Assembly elections schedule, Rahul Gandhi will address two public meetings.
The first public meeting will be held at Bhainsa town of Adilabad district in the state and the second in Kamareddy, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee spokesperson Shravan Dasoju said.
"He will be coming to Bhainsa from Nanded in Maharashtra. After the public meetings, he will be reaching Hyderabad and hoist the Congress flag near Charminar and address the gathering on the occasion of Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana Yatra commemoration day," Dasoju said. At the event, former CM of undivided Andhra Pradesh K Rosaiah will be honoured with the Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana Yatra commemoration award.
The Telangana Assembly was dissolved on September 6. And since the Election Commission announced the election schedule for five states, including Telangana, the Congress party has been holding discussions with the Telugu Desam Party, the CPI and the Telangana Jana Samithi on seat sharing. Once the seat sharing is finalised, the list of the poll candidates is likely to be announced.
All the three parties, together with the Congress, are hoping to oust the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti.
