Posters, cut-outs of Rahul, Sonia Gandhi across Bhopal ahead of road show
Congress president Rahul Gandhi will hold a mega roadshow on Monday over 10 kilometers in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal, to launch his party’s campaign for assembly elections in a state ruled by the BJP for the last 15 years.
Large cutouts and posters of Gandhi have been put up all over the city, some greeting him as a devotee of Lord Shiva. The Congress president is just back from a Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, a pilgrimage to honour Lord Shiva.
The Congress is trying to regain power in Madhya Pradesh, which it had lost to the BJP in 2003. Elections are due in November this year.
