Rahul to tour CM’s turf from today

The centuries-old Chamundeshwari temple in Mysuru, the home district of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, is where Congress president Rahul Gandhi will kickstart the fourth leg of his Janaarshirvada Yatra on Saturday.

Rahul will cover Mysuru, Chamarajanagar and Mandya districts during the two-day tour.

After visiting the Chamundeshwari temple, Rahul is slated to interact with students at the Maharanis College for Women. He will then head to Chamarajanagar where he will address a corner meeting and hold roadshows along the villages of Santhemarahalli, Yalandur and Kollegal. He will address a public rally at Malavalli in Mandya.

On Sunday, Rahul will meet senior party leaders and block Congress committee presidents of Hassan and Chikkamagaluru districts. In Mandya, Rahul will have a roadshow at KR Pet and Pandavapura, followed by a corner meeting at Srirangapatna. He will conclude the tour with a public rally at the Maharaja Ground in Mysuru.

The three districts – Mysuru, Chamarajanagar and Mandya – comprise 22 Assembly seats, of which the Congress holds 14 and the JD(S) has seven.

Rahul began his Janaarshirvada Yatra in February, starting from Hyderabad-Karnataka. He then toured the Mumbai-Karnataka and the coastal regions.
