Rahul’s visit not cancelled due to security threat: Congress

New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) The Congress on Tuesday said its vice president Rahul Gandhi’s two-day visit to poll-bound Puducherry, Tamil Nadu and Kerala was postponed since he was down with fever and not because of any security threat.

“I am 100 percent sure that the anonymous threat letter was not a factor in the postponement of the visit. He is actually ill. He has written about it on Twitter also,” Congress general secretary Shakeel Ahmed told IANS.

He said Gandhi will visit these states some time later.

The Congress leader said Home Minister Rajnath Singh had assured a Congress delegation about Rahul Gandhi’s security.

On Monday night, Gandhi wrote on Twitter: “Unfortunately, I have been down with high fever since Sunday and the doctor has advised rest for the next two days.”

“My apologies to the ppl of Puducherry, Tamil Nadu & Kerala for missing this opportunity of being with them on 10th & 11th May as planned,” he said, adding that he shall keep everyone updated about the rescheduled visits.

Rahul was scheduled to address a rally of the Congress-DMK alliance on Tuesday at Karaikal in Puducherry.
