Rahul Gandhi’s Hyderabad Visit Cancelled-Any Reasons?
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was supposed to visit Hyderabad and interact with student and faculty leaders from Osmania University- the hotbed of Telangana state during the Rythu Bharosa yatra that he is undertaking in Telangana. Typical arrangements for his visit were met with a shocker when it was announced that Rahul would directly proceed to Nirmal from Nanded and would not be making a stop-over in Hyderabad and leaving for Nirmal in a motorcade as it was originally planned. While the official reasons have attributed this change in schedule to sudden high level meetings that Rahul had to attend as well as security issues-with the observation that he didn’t want to divert from assuring farmers in his visit, there is a lot of political speculation on the reason for this change in schedule. This has caused a dampener for Congress leaders eager to meet him as this was his first visit after the formation of Telangana.
