Congress leader Rahul Gandhi rode the auto at two places on Sunday, the last day of campaigning for the Assembly Elections to be held on 6 April in Kerala. Through this, he tried to raise the issue of rising fuel prices during the BJP-NDA regime. Gandhi addressed the election meeting in Nimom in the evening. He arrived here sitting in an autorickshaw, which made everyone shocked. Nemom MP K Muralitharan is a Congress-led UDF candidate. There is a triangular contest between LDF, UDF and BJP on this seat.
Gandhi while addressing party workers in Nimom said that he has come here in an auto rickshaw and the driver said that he is not able to live his livelihood as all his earnings are going to buy fuel. The Congress leader questioned, “The BJP keeps increasing the prices of petrol and diesel and giving people’s money to their friends. How dare he come here and ask for votes from you? ”
Assembly elections in Kerala on 6 April
Earlier in the day, Gandhi also took an auto to go to Kalpettan airstrip. In fact, on the last day of campaigning for the assembly elections to be held in Kerala on April 6, the top leaders of the country and the state held road shows and rallies. In view of the situation of Kovid-19, election campaign has been banned by the Election Commission with the crowd. Despite this, a large number of party workers participated in the last election campaign in most places of 140 assembly constituencies.
Many roads were filled with party workers
Known as “Kottikalsham” in the local language, every political party in the last day’s election campaign tried to show their strength by mobilizing maximum number of supporters in their show. Party workers also lit fireworks and burst firecrackers at some places. The ban of the Election Commission could not dampen the enthusiasm of political parties and many streets were filled with party workers, who were seen waving their party flags, shouting slogans and shouting music at many places.
