Modi to address rally in poll-bound Rajasthan today

Udaipur, Oct. 26 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will address a rally in Udaipur district of Rajasthan on Saturday.

Modi is scheduled to speak at the BJP Janjaati Morcha Sammelan, where he is expected to be accompanied by state party president Vasundhara Raje.

Earlier this week, on Wednesday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi addressed two rallies in poll-bound Rajasthan.

The Congress number two recalled the assassinations of his grandmother Indira Gandhi and his father Rajiv Gandhi in an emotionally charged speech in Churu, Rajasthan on Wednesday, and said he was not afraid if communal anger and hatred killed him someday, but would continue to fight against divisive forces in the country.

The assembly polls in Rajasthan are scheduled to be held on December 1.

Rajasthan is expected to witness a fierce battle between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Moreover, the upcoming assembly election in Rajasthan is being seen as a litmus test for both the parties ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. (ANI)
