Rahul’s Bundelkhand visit postponed

Lucknow, Jan 19 (IANS) Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s one-day tour of the Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh on January 22 has been postponed by a day as it clashed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s schedule, party sources said on Tuesday.

The Gandhi scion was scheduled to visit the area facing acute drought and scanty rainfall.

There is no official word on the reason for the postponement, but insiders said that the state Congress unit told the party leadership that Gandhi’s trip was clashing with that of Modi, who is on a day-long trip to his parliamentary constituency Varanasi and Lucknow.

Many Congress leaders felt that the coinciding of dates of the visit might affect the media coverage of Gandhi. His Bundelkhand visit is in continuance of his dialogue with farmers that he started in Saharanpur last year.
