Congress president Rahul Gandhi is set to file his nomination in Wayanad on Thursday morning. Accompanied by sister Priyanka, Rahul is expected to arrive at Kozhikode airport by 8.30 pm and spend the night at the PWD guest house there and have a meeting with top party and UDF leaders to draw the Wayanad campaign strategy.
Rahul and Priyanka are expected to leave for Wayanad on Thursday morning by helicopter and land at Kalpetta SKMJ High School ground close to the Collectorate where he has to file the nomination. The party has planned a road show to the Collectorate.
However, security officials have made it clear that just five people will be allowed to join Rahul while filing the paper. Rahul is scheduled to meet UDF leaders in the district at a meeting after this, subject to clearance from security agencies.
As part of propaganda, the central Congress leadership has asked VD Satheesan, MLA, to oversee the work of posters for which photographs were supplied. The posters are being printed in Kochi and expected to be made available in Wayanad on Thursday. (UNI)
