Congress President Rahul Gandhi will begin his two-day tour of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh on Monday. He will perform a puja at the famous 'jyotirlinga' in Ujjain and then proceed to the BJP-dominated Malwa-Nimar region.
During his two-day tour, Rahul will address rallies in Jhabua, Indore, Dhar, Khargone and Mhow and also take part in a road show in Indore.
"During his visit to the Mahakaleshwar temple (one of the 12 'jyotirlingas' of Lord Shiva), Rahul will worship the Lord Mahakal like a common devotee," Congress secretary Sanjay Kapoor told PTI in Indore on Sunday.
According to a programme released by Congress, Rahul will address public meetings at Ujjain and Jhabua, respectively, after visiting the Mahakal temple.
He is also scheduled to participate in a road show to be organised by the Congress in Indore on Monday evening, and will address a public meeting at Rajwada.
On Tuesday, Rahul will interact with news editors and the business community in two separate programmes at Indore, the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. He will later address public meetings at Dhar and Khargone.
Later on Tuesday evening, the Congress chief would address a public meeting at Mhow after offering tribute at the memorial of BR Ambedkar's birthplace.
Earlier on October 16, the Congress chief had visited the Satna region. Prior to that he had kicked off his poll campaign in August by visiting the Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga shrine. After his return from Kailash Mansarovar, he was hailed as a Shiv bhakt, with hoardings put up across Bhopal. Further, at Chitrakoot in Satna, he has been projected as ‘Ram-Bhakt Pandit Rahul Gandhi.’
The Congress is leaving no stone unturned to oust the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) which is fighting a strong anti-incumbency for the past 15 years.
