Bhubaneswar: AICC president Rahul Gandhi and senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi are scheduled to visit Odisha in the last week of February, informed Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee president Niranjan Patnaik.
However, place and date of the visit are yet to be finalised, said Patnaik.
“AICC president Rahul Gandhi will visit the State in the last week of February. The place and date of the visit have not finalised. Priyanka Gandhi is likely to accompany Rahul ji,” said Patnaik.
Patnaik said that the OPCC has proposed the AICC requesting a visit of Priyanka Gandhi to the State along with Rahul. Priyanka Gandhi took charge as the All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh on January 23 thereby entering into the politics directly.
Meanwhile, the Congress chief had visited the State twice on January 25 and February 6 and held three public meetings in Bhubaneswar, Bhawanipatna and Rourkela where he came down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on different issues.
