Rahul Gandhi to join Goa Padayatra on Dec 16th
In an attempt to lift the morale of the Congress workers in the run-up to the Goa Polls early next year, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will visit Goa on December 16, to give a boost to the Congress as it prepares for the assembly polls expected in early 2017.
Sources in AICC Delhi and Goa informed GoaChronicle.com that he will be attending the concluding function of Jan Jagruti padayatra of the Congress in Goa.
He is likely to return to Delhi on December 17. Congress has planned a public meet in Fatorda.
The yatra which began last month in Mandrem, the constituency represented by chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar, has covered more than 250km.
Goa pradesh Congress Committee chief Luizinho Faleiro had invited the Gandhi scion to visit Goa.
