Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi are scheduled to visit Tripura in December. This visit is seen as a major attempt by the Congress party to revive its fortunes in the state.
The Congress has been out of power in Tripura for over two decades. The party’s last victory in the state was in 2002. In the 2023 assembly elections, the Congress won only 6 out of the 60 seats in the Tripura Legislative Assembly.
The Congress’s poor performance in Tripura is attributed to a number of factors, including the rise of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state. The BJP has been in power in Tripura since 2018.
Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi’s visit to Tripura is expected to give the Congress party a boost ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The Congress is hoping to capitalize on the popularity of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi to win back the support of the people of Tripura.
The Congress leaders are expected to address public meetings, interact with party workers and local leaders, and meet with representatives of various communities during their visit to Tripura.
The Congress is also planning to launch a major campaign in Tripura in the run-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party is planning to focus on issues such as unemployment, poverty, and the plight of farmers.
The Congress is hoping to make a strong comeback in Tripura in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party is confident that the visit of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi will help it regain the support of the people of Tripura
