Rahul Gandhi in Rajasthan: The Bharatpur district administration has granted permission for Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s rally and a roadshow here at the last moment. Initially, there were reports that the permission was denied by Bharatpur SDM Jagdish Arya after the Congress failed to obtain a no objection certificate from the owner of the rally ground near Bayana.

Following the notice issued by the SDM on Monday, the Congress party contacted the owner of the land and managed to obtain a written permission from him for the election event. Later in the evening, Arya issued the necessary order granting permission for the public meeting.


Congress leader Govind Singh Dotasara confirmed that the SDM has granted permission for the event. However, Congress’ city unit leader Ashok Garg accused the local administration of creating unwanted hurdles.


Rahul Gandhi’s two-day Rajasthan visit begins today. According to Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, Rahul will visit Bharatpur, Dausa and Dholpur on Tuesday. He will start his visit by addressing a public meeting in Mania. He will then visit Badi, Basedi, Bayana and Vair.

On Wednesday, the Congress president will address a ‘Sankalp Rally’ in Bikaner. Several events in Jaipur are also planned for Wednesday that will be attended by the Congress leader.

The state will go to polls in a single phase on December 7. Results will be declared on December 11.
