    Rahul Gandhi to kick-start Congress campaign in Assam

    Gandhi is slated to visit the historic city of Sivasagar on Sunday and is expected to address a gathering comprising at least 20,000 party members.

    Guwahati: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday will kick-start the party’s campaign for the upcoming Assembly elections in Assam.

    Gandhi is slated to visit the historic city of Sivasagar on Sunday and is expected to address a gathering comprising at least 20,000 party members from Sivasagar and nearby districts at the Boarding Field.

    This will be the maiden visit of Rahul Gandhi to the poll-bound Assam this year. His visit would follow a ‘bus yatra’ the state unit had launched on Friday to drum up support for its “Axom Basaon Ahok” (Come, let’s save Assam) campaign.

    The Sivasagar and Nazira assemblies have been under the Congress reign since many years. Gandhi’s visit will be a major boost for the political party in fighting the upcoming polls.

    Reportedly, eight names of leaders for the candidature from Sivasagar LAC for the elections have been stated that includes Kalyan Gogoi, Prasanta Gogoi, Subhamitra Gogoi, Bidyut Gogoi, Parama Gogoi, wife of former minister Devananda Konwar Nive Konwar and the two sons of former Speaker and MLA from the constituency Pronob Gogoi – Manjeer Gogoi and Prameer Gogoi.
