Rahul cancels Meghalaya visit to file nomination in Kerala
Shillong, Apr 01 (HS): The proposed visit of Congress president Rahul Gandhi to Meghalaya to campaign for the ensuing Lok Sabha election has been cancelled. He was supposed to visit the State on Wednesday next to drum up support for the two Congress candidates Vincent Pala and former chief minister Mukul Sangma. He was supposed to meet the party MPs, MLAs, MDCs and other leaders in Shillong. Sitting two time parliamentarian Vincent Pala is seeking re-election for the Shillong seat while former chief minister and present leader of the Opposition Dr Mukul Sangma is fighting the polls against National People’s Party (NPP) candidate and former union minister Agatha Sangma. The Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) official Sanjay Das on Monday informed that the visit of the Congress president has been cancelled as he has to go to Kerala to file his nomination papers to contest from Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency. He will also contest from Amethi Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh. The two Lok Sabha seats in Meghalaya – Shillong and Tura – will go to polls in the first phase on April 11. The by-election to Selsella Assembly seat will be also conducted on the same date. Hindusthan Samachar/Dhrubajyoti/Shri Ram\
