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.
Addressing a press conference on January 20 in Guwahati, Ripun Bora, President, Assam Congress had said, “In upcoming Assam Assembly polls, Congress, All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), Communist Party of India (CPI), CPI (Marxist), CPI (Marxist-Leninist) and Anchalik Gana Morcha will fight together to oust BJP. We will keep our doors open for other regional and anti-BJP parties to join us.”
