RAHUL’S NO SHOW

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Those look­ing for­ward to Rahul Gandhi’s ral­lies in Hamirpur in Bun­delk­hand and Salem­pur in east­ern Uttar Pradesh will have to wait a lit­tle more. The two ral­lies, sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 22, have been can­celled, os­ten­si­bly be­cause of Karva Chauth, but most prob­a­bly be­cause Con­gress­men were ner­vous of at­tract­ing enough crowds. Al­though Rahul’s speeches in Ali­garh and Ram­pur on Oc­to­ber 9 were im­pres­sive, just about 20,000 peo­ple came. The ac­tual rea­son could well be Naren­dra Modi’s rally in Jhansi and the crowds that are an­tic­i­pated.
