To give a push to the Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ alliance in Assam ahead of the third phase of Assembly elections, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will once again visit the poll-bound state on Friday.
Priyanka will address three public meetings in Lower Assam, where the third and final phase of the Assembly elections will be held.
A Congress leader said that Priyanka will address three public meetings at Goalpara East, Golakganj and Sarukhetri areas.
This will be Priyanka’s third visit to the poll-bound Assam since March 1.
Voting for the second phase of Assembly elections in the BJP-ruled state for 39 of the 126 Assembly constituencies is currently on.
On March 27, nearly 80 percent of 81,09,815 voters cast their votes in the first phase conducted in 47 Assembly constituencies.
The third and final phase would be held in 40 seats on April 6. Results will be declared on May 2.
Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, former Maharashtra CM Ashok Chavan, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath, party spokesman Gourav Vallabh and general secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala were among the central leaders who campaigned for their party candidates.
To take on the BJP, the Congress, formed a 10-party ‘Mahajot’ (grand alliance), comprising three Left parties – the CPI-M, the CPI and the CPI-ML, along with the AIUDF, the Anchalik Gana Morcha, the BPF, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and two community-based parties – the Jimochayan (Deori) People’s Party and Adivasi National Party.
