New Delhi (EMS). Congress will rally in Jaipur against rising inflation in the country. Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also address this rally. According to Congress, this rally is against inflation. But with the preparations in Rajasthan, it is being seen as preparations for the coronation of Rahul Gandhi as the President again.
Special attention has been given to the photographs of Rahul Gandhi in posters-banners and newspapers in Rajasthan. At the same time, party workers and other prominent leaders from across the country will participate in this rally. Congress general secretary and in-charge of Rajasthan Ajay Maken said yesterday that this is a national rally, in which chief ministers of other states, former chief ministers, Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi will participate. However, whether Congress President Sonia Gandhi will attend this rally or not, it is not clear yet. For the promotion of the rally, banners and posters have been put up on all major roads and squares of the city. These posters have pictures of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi, Organization General Secretary KC Venugopal, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, State in-charge Ajay Maken and State President Govind Singh Dotasara. But the special thing is that Rahul Gandhi’s photo has been given prominence and he is in the center of every poster. The advertisement given by the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee on the front page of some local newspapers on Saturday also has a picture of Rahul Gandhi in the middle. In political circles, this is being seen as a sign of preparations to make Rahul Gandhi the new president of the party.
Former Union Minister V Narayanasamy said outside Congress state headquarters that Rahul Gandhi is our leader. Everyone wants him to become the party president again. It is worth noting that this rally was earlier to be held in Delhi, but due to not getting approval, it is being done in Jaipur. The rally is to be held at the Vidyadhar Nagar stadium here and according to party sources, it is aiming to mobilize as many people as possible. It is also being considered as a test of strength of the government and party organization in Rajasthan in front of the Congress high command. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot visited Vidyadhar Nagar Stadium yesterday to take stock of the preparations. The party has appointed in-charges for the representatives coming from different states and issued their names and phone numbers. 11 committees have been constituted for the preparations for the rally.
The goal of mobilizing people has been given by the state government by making ministers in-charge for all the districts. During this, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala targeted the policies and decisions of the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for rising inflation in the country. Surjewala said that every decision of the Modi government is anti-people.
Especially after the decision of demonetisation, economic activities got derailed. On allegations of using government machinery for the rally, Surjewala said that when Prime Minister Modi visits Uttar Pradesh and Chief Minister Adityanath holds the rally, resources are arranged through officials. But when the Congress holds a rally even at its own expense, the BJP makes allegations. Congress State President Govind Singh Dotasara said that the rally will be held following all the rules related to Covid-19. He said that arrangements have been made for chairs, masks will be provided and thermal scanning of the participants will be done.
