New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will campaign in the poll-bound state of Haryana on October 14, party sources said on Wednesday. Sources also said that Rahul Gandhi will also hold an election rally in Mumbai on October 13.
This comes as the former Congress president is taking flack from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for going on "holiday" ahead of the assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra.
"Congress party had opposed the triple talaq bill, surgical strikes, airstrike, and removal of Article 370. When elections are being held in Haryana and Maharashtra, Rahul Gandhi is on a holiday. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi you should come to Haryana and tell people whether you support the removal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir or not," Shah had said on Wednesday.
Gandhi even received criticism from his own party as party leaders Salman Khurshid and Jyotiraditya Scindia expressed concern over the current situation and future of the Congress party.
Haryana and Maharashtra are scheduled for elections on October 21 and the votes will be counted on October 24.
