The president of the Indian National Congress, Rahul Gandhi, is set to begin his campaigning for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections in the state of Maharashtra today, post his extensive campaigns in North-East India over the last few days. He will begin with Dhule, and then follow it with another rally at Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai. In light of the high-alert across the country following the India-Pakistan tension, with red alert over Mumbai especially, tight security will be deployed for the evening rally.

The President of the Mumbai Congress, Sanjay Nirupam, has been quoted as “expecting a massive turnout”, as this marks the onset of campaigning in the country’s financial capital and Gandhi’s first-ever rally since he was appointed Party President.

Traffic police in the city expect the rally with its 2000-plus police personnel and massive turnout, to cause congestion on the heavily-frequented BKC road, and have appealed to all vehicles to travel via alternative routes.
