Congress’s turmoil’s within the MVA to hurt election campaign?

Once again, Maharashtra Congress seems to be lost in a different world. While Nagpur is set to host the next Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA)’s “Vajramooth” rally on April 16, the Congress Party is planning a separate solo rally in the same city a week later, where both Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi are set to verbally attack the BJP.

Interestingly, while an anonymous Congress leader objected to the timing of the rally by the Gandhi duo, the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) said it has “no objection” with it, trying to establish a calmer image between the two parties especially after Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at Rahul’s for his alleged mocking of Marathi freedom fighter and icon, Vinayak Savarkar

“The Congress is holding rallies across the country against the Modi government’s policies favouring certain industrialists and trying to wreck our democracy. The first rally is likely to take place at Kolar, the second one in Nagpur. The Nagpur rally will be held sometime between April 20 and 25. The exact date has not been fixed so far,” the state Congress’s chief spokesperson Atul Londhe said, addressing the media.

Speaking about the 2 different rallies been organised in Nagpur, that too in such short time, Londhe quoted, “Rahul Gandhi’s rally is part of the nationwide rallies planned by the Congress against the Modi government’s policies, while from the MVA’s ‘Vajramooth’ rally, the three parties will unitedly highlight the state government’s failures.”

The Shiv Sena – BJP government is headed by Eknath Shinde as Chief Minister and Devendra Fadnavis as Deputy CM.

Uddhav Sena veteran and spokesperson Sanjay Raut stated that the Aghadi has no problem with Congress holding another rally. The emphasised that the MVA’s rally is focused on Maharashtra while the Congress Party’s rally is nationwide and the Central government will be under fire in both of them.
