Congress president Rahul Gandhi is set to visit Tripura on 20 March to kick off the party’s Lok Sabha election campaign with a public rally.
A senior leader in the party said preparations were afoot to welcome the Gandhi scion. “Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief Pradyot Kishore Debburman has recently convened a meeting to discuss the preparations being made for Gandhi’s visit. He will be meeting leaders in Delhi to finalise the programme,” Tapas Dey, the party’s state unit vice president, told.
Pradyot Kishore Debabaraman, after his appointment last month, requested all leaders to return to the party.
The newly appointed TPCC chief said everyone in the party would be given due respect and, in return, they would have to work with honesty and integrity. “It would be my endeavour to build a strong organisation with the participation of youth, women, educated and honest people,” he told reporters Sunday.
