Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra offered prayers at Ramappa Temple in Mulugu district in Telangana on Wednesday.
The brother-sister duo arrived at Ramappa Temple in Telangana’s Mulugu as part of their Vijayabheri yatra. The leaders will commence their bus yatra, which will start from the Ramappa temple and conclude at Ramanujapuram.
Both leaders will respectfully present the Congress’s six guarantees before Lord Shiva as part of their visit, followed by the launch of the Vijayabheri bus yatra.
Subsequently, both leaders will engage with women from the Mulugu and Bhupalpally areas to gain insights into their concerns.
During his three-day visit, Rahul Gandhi is set to conduct a series of public meetings and connect with labourers, farmers, and party members. This visit by both leaders is expected to provide a significant boost to the Telangana Congress.
