Jaipur: The Congress will take out Sankalp rallies in all divisions of Rajasthan from August 24. The first Sankalp roadshow will be conducted in Chittorgarh followed by Churu, Barmer, Karauli and Nagaur division.
Around 1 lakh people are expected to participate in the Chittorgarh rally led by Congress president Rahul Gandhi on August 24.
After the road show conducted by Congress president Gandhi in Jaipur nearly a week ago, Congress will hold roadshows in all divisions of Rajasthan. Congress leaders will first interact with people during the roadshow and then hold public meetings.
These rallies will raise the issues of “corruption, inflation, crime and atrocities on women under the BJP rule”. The same issues were raised by Rahul Gandhi during his roadshow in Jaipur recently.
The roadshow will cover a distance of 5 km to 10 km in every division. The Congress had planned to conduct a Sankalp rally in Kota on August 19 after the roadshow in Jaipur, but it was postponed due to Rahul Gandhi’s foreign visit.
The Congress will conduct 21 Sankalp rallies across the state before the upcoming assembly elections. The rallies at the district level will be taken out in October and November. The Sankalp rally campaign will culminate in Jaipur where a state-level program will be held.
The party’s state unit chief Sachin Pilot, AICC general secretary and in-charge of party affairs in the state Avinash Pande, AICC general secretary and former chief minister Ashok Gehlot, leader of opposition in the state legislative assembly Rameshwar Dudi and several other leaders will attend all Sankalp rallies at the division and district level.
