New Delhi: With less than a month left for the Karnataka assembly election day, Rahul Gandhi seems to be planning to make at least three visits to the state, this intensifies the party’s campaigning as it tries to retain power there, sources said.
Elections will be held in Karnataka on May 12.
According to sources, Mr Gandhi is expected to visit those parts of Karnataka which was not visited by him yet as part of his Jana Aashirwada Yatre there.
“All his rallies and meetings till now have received a good response. There is a feeling among Karnataka workers that he should cover more areas in the four regions of the state to ensure our victory,” a party leader said.
With the Chief of Congress visiting the state means that it will also ensure that workers remain upbeat till the election date, the leader further added.
During the Congress president’s recently held road show in the state’s Tumkur, a party man had thrown a garland towards him and it had perfectly landed around the Congress chief’s neck.
