New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will begin his two-day visit to Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday. He will be visiting state capital Bhopal and Dhar district. Rahul will meet office bearers and block level party members in Mohankedha in Dhar district, and then proceed to Bhopal on Thursday, where he is likely to hold talks with members of the Congress Committee.
In Bhopal, he will meet representatives of parliamentary constituencies of Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee at Bhopal's Manas Bhawan. He will later meet elected Congress members of Panchayati Raj at Rajendra Bhawan.
Meanwhile Rahul on Tuesday made a fierce attack on the BJP's rule in Karnataka, accusing it of 'looting' the state and calling it a 'champion' of corruption. Setting an aggressive tone to the Congress campaign for the May 5 Assembly polls, in his first election outing since becoming the Vice President, Gandhi turned the spotlight mostly on corruption in his public meetings at Sindhanoor, Hungund and Bijapur in northern Karnataka.
Seeking to strike a chord with the gathering after arriving nearly two hours late in his first meeting at Sindhanoor, he tried to make it interactive posing questions on BJP's poll promises and whether they have been fulfilled to which the crowd responded with a vociferous 'no'.
