Rahul Gandhi to visit Dehradun on Friday
Dehradun: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will arrive here on Friday to take stock of the party`s affairs in Uttarakhand.
Party workers are enthusiastic about Rahul Gandhi`s visit to the state tomorrow, Pradesh Congress spokesman Dhirendra Pratap said, adding, all preparations in view of his visit are complete.
He will arrive here at about 9 AM and meet party office bearers in two sessions at different city hotels, Pratap said.
Gandhi will also address an NSUI training camp to be held at hotel Sunrise here, he said.
This is Gandhi`s first visit to the state after his elevation as party vice president.
His visit here is being seen as an exercise aimed at preparing the party in view of the forthcoming civic body polls in the state and the 2014 general elections.
Rahul, who spoke at length in the meeting directed the leaders to intensify public campaign and strengthen the party at the village level.
He had earlier held similar interactions with party MPs from Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Goa since the Budget session began.
He is visiting Uttarakhand tomorrow, where he will held meetings with office bearers of district and block Congress committees.
This will be second such meeting of Rahul in states after he held a two-day interaction programme in Odisha last month to get feedback from the grass roots.
He had given the message of "go to the grass roots" to AICC office-bearers yesterday during the interaction at the party headquarters. He had also asked the AICC secretaries to visit districts more often and stressed on coordination at all levels in the party.
