Congress was also seen divided during Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Punjab. Only 5 Congress MPs boycotted Rahul’s visit. These include Manish Tewari, Ravneet Bittu, Jasbir Dimpa, Mohammad Siddiqui, and Parneek Kaur.


Preneet Kaur is the wife of former Chief Minister of the state, Captain Amarinder Singh. Captain Amarinder Singh has left the Congress and formed a new party named Punjab Lok Congress and is contesting the elections in alliance with the BJP.

Rahul Gandhi visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar today. Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and the party’s state president Navjot Singh Sidhu were also present with him.

This is Rahul Gandhi’s first visit to Punjab since the Election Commission of India banned physical rallies earlier in the month. Significantly, the assembly elections in Punjab will be held on February 20. The counting of votes will take place on March 10.
