Rahul to interact with State youth

He will talk to students in six colleges across five cities

Sources in the Congress said that Rahul consciously keeps party leaders, workers as well as mediapersons away from his ‘awareness building’ exercises across across the country involving students, women and social groups and villagers.

Congress senior leaders in the State have hardly any details about his programme, although they are aware of the tentative itinerary.

His personnel staff have visited the five cities where the programmes are scheduled to supervise the arrangements. Rumours were rife that he may opt to stay in a village in Hubli-Dharwad, but the programme schedule lists his night halt at Circuit House, Hubli on Friday.

The Congress general secretary will arrive by a special flight from Delhi to Bangalore and reach Mysore by 9.55 am. His interaction at St Philomena’s College will last an hour from 10.15 am. He has been provided with Z category security. For security reasons, students will be asked to assemble an hour before the programme begins, sources said.

Later, he will be at Shimoga’s Kuvempu Rangamandira for interaction with students of Acharya Tulasi College, from 1 to 2 pm.

He will then leave for Hubli to interact with students of SDM College at Veerendra Heggade Auditorium, Dharwad from 3.35 pm onwards.

Like day one, the second day too will be be a hectic day for Rahul. His interaction with the students of Appa Institute of Engineering in Gulbarga begins at 10.15 am. He will then leave for Bangalore and will visit the KPCC office on Queen’s Road around 1.45 pm.

From 3.45 pm it would the students of National College, Basavangudi who would be with Rahul. At 5.30 pm it will be the turn of the students of National Law School, Nagarbhavi. Later he will leave for Delhi. Rahul will restrict his opening remarks or comments for less than 10 minutes, then leave the forum for interaction with students.

What he would discuss with students? Sources said he will explain to students the challenges being faced by the country and the role they can play. The six colleges selected for his visit are not in the elite category, although they are reputed institutions not owned by any individual and where all income group parents send their children, the sources said.
