GUWAHATI, April 2 - Congress president Rahul Gandhi will hit the campaign trail in Assam tomorrow by addressing public meetings at Bokakhat and North Lakhimpur.
Gandhi will arrive at Dimapur in Nagaland tomorrow morning from Delhi in a special flight. He will take part in a Congress rally at Dimapur before leaving for Bokakhat by helicopter.
The Congress president will address a public meeting at Bokakhat at 1 pm for the party�s Kaliabor constituency candidate Gaurav Gogoi.
Gandhi will then go to Lakhimpur where he will address a rally for party's Lakhimpur constituency candidate Anil Borgohain.
Both Kaliabor and Lakhimpur constituencies will go to the polls in the first phase on April 11.
Gandhi will be accompanied by former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora, Leader of State Congress Legislature Party Debabrata Saikia and other senior leaders at both places.
While the main contest in Lakhimpur is likely to be between the Congress and the BJP, in Kaliabor the main contenders in the Lok Sabha polls will be the Congress and the AGP.
BJP has renominated its sitting MP Pradan Baruah in Lakhimpur, while in Kaliabor the AGP candidate is Mani Madhav Mahanta, who is being supported by the NDA constituents, including the BJP.
It is noteworthy that both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah had visited Assam last week and attended poll rallies of the ruling party.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Congress� Gaurav Gogoi had won from the Kaliabor constituency. BJP�s Sarbananda Sonowal had emerged victorious from Lakhimpur.
Sonowal had later resigned from the Lok Sabha after taking over as Chief Minister in 2016. BJP�s Baruah had got elected in the bye-election held after the resignation of Sonowal from the Lok Sabha.
