Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be in West Bengal on April 14, and address rallies in Goalpokhar and Matigara-Naxalbari. The former Congress president will start the campaign after four phases of polling has ended in the state and the fifth phase is scheduled on April 17.
The Congress is fighting the Assembly elections in Bengal in an alliance with the Left parties and the ISF. The Congress is contesting from 92 seats as part of the alliance.
Hardly any national leader has campaigned in Bengal for the Congress so far. There have been Salman Khurshid and Jaiveer Shergill, apart from the party’s leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury. It is being said that the Congress leaders were not sharing the dais with the Left in Bengal till elections in Kerala got over as Rahul Gandhi has been attacking them in Kerala.
