Congress President Rahul Gandhi will address three election campaign meetings in Telangana on April 1. Gandhi will address rallies at Zaheerabad, Wanaparthy (Nagar kurnool Lok Sabha constituency) and Huzur nagar (Nalgonda seat), state Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said. Reddy himself is the party candidate from Nalgonda.
The Congress nominees in Zaheerabad and Nagar kurnool are Madan Mohan Rao and Mallu Ravi respectively. The Congress is going it alone in the Lok Sabha polls. The CPI and Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS), who are only contesting in a couple of seats, have extended support to the Congress in seats where they have not fielded candidates. TDP, which decided not to contest Lok Sabha seats in Telangana, has also decided, in principle, to support the Congress.
