New Delhi, Dec. 13 (Delhi Crown): Congress leader and MP Rahul Gandhi will be participating in a “Padyatra” in Amethi on December 18 as part of Congress’ ongoing nationwide “Jan Jagran Abhiyan,” announced the party’s General Secretary (Organisation) K.C. Venugopal on Monday (Dec 13)
AICC General Secretary (Uttar Pradesh) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also join the “padyatra”, added Venugopal.
The party’s event assumes significance in the wake of the forthcoming Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, slated to be held in April 2022.
In the last General Elections held in 2019, Rahul Gandhi had lost from Amethi parliamentary constituency after representing it thrice.
The Congress party had launched a countrywide agitation program “Jan Jagran Abhiyan” on November 14 in a bid to “expose the gross mismanagement” of the economy by the Modi Govt and make the people aware of the Government’s insensitivity in addressing the prevalent back breaking inflation.
“Ordinary people supporting the campaign also have been registering themselves for ongoing Congress Membership drive launched from Nov 1 through missed call and other processes. The party has also tried to ensure a discussion on the issue in the ongoing winter session of parliament,” said Venugopal in a statement.
According to him, Rahul Gandhi will also be attending a public rally in Dehradun on Dec 16 celebrate 50th anniversary of “Vijay Diwas” commemorating the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh Liberation War and victory over Pakistan.
