BENGALURU: AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi is set to give a pep talk to Congress leaders in Karnataka on Monday to galvanise the party ahead of the Assembly election next year.
Rahul, who is arriving on a day’s visit to Bengaluru, is scheduled to participate in a function to release National Herald’s commemorative publication ‘India at a Crossroads: 70 years of Independence’ by Vice President of India Hamid Ansari at Ambedkar Bhavan.

Later in the afternoon, Rahul will address the general body meeting of KPCC at Jnanajyoti Auditorium. The meeting will be attended by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, AICC General Secretary in-charge of party affairs in Karnataka K C Venugopal, KPCC president G Parameshwara, party working presidents Dinesh Gundurao and S R Patil among others. The meeting is expected to see Rahul exhort the party rank and file to bury their differences and propagate the achievements of the Siddaramaiah government to the masses to ensure the victory of Congress party in 2018 Assembly election.

Apart from KPCC functionaries, office-bearers of district Congress committees and various wings of the party, invitations have also been extended to intelligentsia in various domains like writers, artists and social thinkers, Parameshwara said.

“Rahul is expected to speak about the preparations for the 2018 Assembly election, the need to iron out the weaknesses in organisational matters and the challenges the party is facing to win the 2018 Assembly election,” he said.
State Congress leaders have requested Rahul to visit the state more frequently with the Assembly polls fast approaching to inspire the partymen.
