Rahul Gandhi to start Congress campaign for Assam polls today

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

He will address a rally in Sivasagar.

Assam was under Congress rule for more than a decade until late chief minister Tarun Gogoi lost the elections to Sarabananda Sonowal in 2016 which saw the beginning of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) rule in Bengal.
