On February 27, 28 and March 1, Gandhi would cover the five southern districts of Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli, Tenkasi, Tuticorin and Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K S Alagiri said here.

During his campaign, the top leader is set to interact with various sections of society including farmers, students, small, medium and micro industries and would address public meetings as well, he said.

Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi for not meeting and interacting with people during his visit here on Sunday to launch several projects, Alagiri said Gandhi is a 'people's leader' and would be with the public.

Unlike Modi, 'Rahul Gandhi will meet several thousands of people, youths, workers, fishermen and those from several other fields, and he will be among the people as a leader of the people to listen to them and discuss their problems,' he told reporters.

Gandhi campaigned in western regions of Tamil Nadu including Tirupur last month and he held interactive sessions with representatives from industries as well besides addressing rallies. PTI VGN BN ADMINISTRATOR BN ADMINISTRATOR
