Manmohan Singh to campaign in Sikh-dominated areas

Delhi, India: With less than three weeks to go for the polling of votes in Delhi, the Congress is relying on its three star campaigners — party president Sonia Gandhi, vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh — to win over the electorate.

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said the party would also release its election manifesto on November 19.

The three most popular of the party’s leaders will address rallies separately in the next two weeks. While the younger Gandhi will address a rally at Dakshinpuri in south Delhi on Sunday, Sonia will address a gathering at Shastri Park in east Delhi on November 24. The Prime Minister will go to the Sikh- and Punjabi-dominated Tilak Nagar in west Delhi on November 27.

“During Rahulji’s rally in Mongolpuri, we had promised similar rallies of our top leaders. Apart from these three big rallies, our chief minister will go to various constituencies to campaign for our candidates,” Delhi’s urban development minister Arvinder Singh said.

Almost 25,000 people are expected to come to Rahul’s rally on Sunday, he added.
