In Rajasthan's capital Jaipur, the Congress is going to organize a 'Mehangai Hatao' Maharally today. Rajasthan Congress leader and former deputy CM of the state, Sachin Pilot, has put all his strength into this. He has prepared a strategy for this rally by meeting the state Congress in-charge and former Union Minister Ajay Maken. On the other hand, Ajay Maken, the Congress in-charge of the state, is also keeping a close watch on the preparations for the rally while staying in Jaipur. The rally will be addressed by former party President Rahul Gandhi, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and other Congress leaders from across the country.
According to the reports, on Sunday, the Congress is going to organize a 'Mahagai Hatao' Maharally in Vidyanagar, Rajasthan's capital Jaipur. About two lakh people are being claimed to be gather in this rally on behalf of the party. Apart from Jaipur and its surrounding areas, party representatives and workers are expected to come from many districts of the state in this rally.
Along with this, it is also being discussed in the reports that there are two motives behind organizing the 'Mehangai Hatao Rally' to be held in Jaipur on Sunday. The first is that through this rally, the Congress has to be re-established as the largest opposition party in the country by demonstrating against the NDA government at the Center and secondly, through this, former Congress President and MP Rahul Gandhi has to present as a big leader of the Congress. Apart from this, between these two objectives, former deputy CM of the state, Sachin Pilot, also wants to make himself an image in front of the party as a stronger leader of the state than Ashok Pilot.
Congress's 'Mehangai Hatao Rally’ in Jaipur is being organized at a time when only its constituents, including the BJP, are seen opposing the Congress-led United Progressive (UPA) in the country. Earlier this month, several senior Congress leaders left the party and joined West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC). Along with this, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was on a visit to Mumbai during this time, had given a statement denying the UPA after meeting Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar.
After meeting NCP chief Sharad Pawar, during the joint press conference with Mamata Banerjee, it was announced that there is no UPA in the country. The third Front will be formed to counter BJP and PM Modi. However, after his statement, Maha Aghadi's constituent party in Maharashtra and the ruling party Shiv Sena tried to pacify the matter. In the national context, amidst discussions about the rejection of the UPA and the formation of the Third Front, the 'Mehangai Hatao' Maharally to be held in Jaipur on Sunday is being considered important for the Congress.
