In the run-up to the Assembly elections, Congress president Rahul Gandhi is on a two-day visit to poll-bound Rajasthan on Tuesday. He is holding a roadshow from Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje’s home turf Dholpur to Dausa on Tuesday. He will also attend several events in Jaipur before addressing the ‘Sankalp Rally’ in Bikaner on Wednesday.

Gandhi will cover Dholpur, Bharatpur and Dausa districts, travelling over 250 km, during the road show. The three districts have 16 assembly seats, of which a majority are with the BJP.

Rahul Gandhi claimed that the government had destroyed the country's economy with decisions such as demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax.

Here are highlights:

# 16:35: "Modi Ji appears on TV 24 hours, his posters can be seen everywhere. Nobody can appear on TV free of cost,otherwise everyone would have appeared on TV. It requires crores for marketing and PM's marketing is done by the industrialists to whom  the PM is giving crores," says Rahul Gandhi in Bari, Rajasthan.

#13:19: Congress President Rahul Gandhi is greeted by enthusiastic crowds during his Yatra from Dholpur to Dausa in Rajasthan.

#13:09: You are taking a selfie, if you turn the phone you will find 'Made in China' written on it. I want 'Made in Dholpur', 'Made in Rajasthan', 'Made in Jaipur' written on it. I want that when someone takes a selfie in China, he would see the words 'Made in Dholpur' written at the back of the phone & wonder where it is. Then we bring him to Rajasthan as a tourist, put his money in your pocket & send him back by flight: Rahul Gandhi in Dholpur.

#13:05: Youth of Rajasthan, MP, UP are assaulted and mistreated in Gujarat. You had trusted Narendra Modi, hoping that he will provide employment, but he broke your trust: Congress President Rahul Gandhi 

#13: 02: We will form your government. We govern with love and harmony while they govern with hatred and polarisation. BJP talks about their 'Mann ki Baat', we listen to your 'Mann ki Baat': Congress President

The Bharatpur district administration granted permission for Gandhi’s rally and a roadshow in Bharatpur at the last moment.
