Rahul Gandhi on feedback mission in Rajasthan

Jaipur, May 15 : Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi arrived in Rajasthan's Bikaner district Wednesday to hold "feedback meetings" with the party's workers, party officials said.

Rahul Gandhi is on a two-day visit of the state during which he will collect feedback from workers about the party's prospects in the upcoming assembly and Lok Sabha elections.

Assembly polls are scheduled in Congress-ruled Rajasthan at the year-end.

He will arrive in Jaipur Thursday, sources said.

In Bikaner, sources said Rahul Gandhi met party workers and district- and block-level office bearers of the state unit. During the meeting, party workers complained about senior leaders and their way of functioning.

"The workers complained against former minister and head of finance commission B.D. Kalla, who acted against the party's official candidates during the last assembly elections. Rahul is listening more and speaking less in the meetings. He wants the party to fight unitedly during the coming elections," said a source in the Congress party.

Rahul Gandhi is likely to meet around 6,500 party workers and leaders in Bikaner and Jaipur.

Leaders of the National Students Union of India (NSUI) and the Youth Congress were present during the meeting in Bikaner Wednesday.

"Rahul will play a crucial role in chalking out the strategy of the campaign during the assembly elections in November or December. Party workers were asked to give their opinions, suggestions and complaints to Rahul directly," said a party leader.
