Congress will begin its election campaign for the Bihar Assembly election with party leader Rahul Gandhi addressing a virtual “rally” on Thursday that will be attended by party workers from various blocs in the state and members of the office.
He will also discuss various matters relating to people.
Congressman Bihar Shakti Sinh Gohil, MP, told ANI news agency that Mr Gandhi will interact with the state’s congressman, four serving presidents in addition to district and bloc presidents.
Issues such as flood losses in the state, the coronavirus crisis and the preparation of polls will be discussed at the meeting.
Mr Gandhi had previously practically interacted with party leaders during the elections in Bihar. Following the interaction, party leaders held a meeting with alliance partners in the state.
Sources said that a formula for sharing seats had not yet been finalized.
The Election Commission did not take a final call on polling dates in Bihar and sought suggestions from political parties.
Assembly polls in Bihar are expected later this year. In the 2015 Assembly polls, Congress fought in alliance with Janata Dal-United and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) as part of “mahagathbandhan”.
The JD-U later returned to NDA.
