BHUBANESWAR : Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi is likely to visit Odisha on April 28 and May 3 to campaign for party candidates at Salipur in Cuttack district, Rayagada and Berhampur.

State in-charge Ajoy Kumar told mediapersons Rahul has been requested to campaign at Salipur, Berhampur and Rayagada. Confirmation from him in this regard is expected by Tuesday morning. Besides, president of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Mallikarjun Kharge has been requested to campaign for party candidate at Balangir. Similarly, AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi will also visit Nabarangpur, he added.

Ajoy Kumar said while Priyanka is expected to visit Odisha on May 6, Kharge is likely to campaign for the party on May 7 at Balangir. “We have requested Rahul to campaign in Salepur, Rayagada and Berhampur.
