With 2018 Assembly elections just a few months away, Congress president Rahul Gandhi Thursday kick-started his two-day visit to the poll-bound Madhya Pradesh. Early in the day, the Gandhi scion has offered prayers at the famous Kamtanath temple in Chitrakoot, a religious town closely associated with Lord Ram. During his visit, Gandhi will also take a roadshow in Satna and Rewa areas on September 27 and 28. This is Rahul Gandhi's second visit within a span of 10 days to the BJP-ruled state where assembly elections are due later this year.
