Congress president Rahul Gandhi to hold three rallies in Rajasthan today

New Delhi/Jaipur, Mar 26 (IBNS): Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday will hold two public meetings and a booth workers meeting in Rajasthan ahead of the Lok Sabha election 2019.

Gandhi will hold rallies in Ganganagar and Bundi and the booth workers meeting at Ramleela Ground in Jaipur.

The 17th Lok Sabha Election will begin on Apr 11 and end on May 19.

In late 2018, the Congress had wrested power in Rajasthan, defeating the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which rules the Centre.

Gandhi will hold the rallies a day after announcing a Rs. 72,000-crore minimum income scheme for poor people. The Congress chief said the scheme will be implemented if his party comes to power.

The scheme, which has been worked out by former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, has marked Rs. 12,000 per month as the "minimum income line".

Any poor but working person, who has an income of less than Rs. 12,000 per month, will be helped by the scheme to touch the "minimum income line". Once the person's income naturally becomes Rs. 12,000 per month, the scheme will automatically cease to work.
