Political temperature in Assam is heating up with parties intensifying their election campaigning.

Intense campaigning is underway across Assam with parties, especially the Congress and the BJP going all out to woo the voters.

The near-depleted Congress two months back, has somehow managed to get its act together, just in time, to launch one of the party’s most impressive election campaigning thus far.

Taking a cue from its rival BJP, the Congress has also decided to bring in their top national party leaders to campaign in Assam for the Assembly Elections.

On February 14, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had visited Assam, where he addressed a massive gathering in Sivasagar.

During his rally in Sivasagar, Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on the BJP-led Governments in the Centre and Assam.

Rahul Gandhi had said that if the Congress is voted back to power in Assam, it will not let CAA be implemented.

Rahul Gandhi is also likely to visit Assam again very soon.

With the elections approaching fast, Congress’ National General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi is also all set to visit Assam.

Priyanka Gandhi is likely to visit Assam on February 24.

Priyanka Gandhi will be addressing an election rally at Tezpur in Assam.

Notably, the Congress has planned to hold at least three public rallies in the Barak Valley, Upper Assam and Lower Assam in February for Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.

Apart from Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, two other prominent Congress leaders – Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel and Congress’ Assam in-charge Jitendra Singh Alwar – are also campaigning vigorously in Assam.
