BELLARY: All-India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi will soon visit Hospet in Bellary district to campaign for the coming Assembly elections. “Ms. Gandhi has agreed to visit Hospet and participate in the farmers’ rally to be held here. But with the Assembly elections having been announced, we would like to make use of her visit to campaign for the party,” said the former Deputy Chief Minister M.P. Prakash, who recently joined the Congress.

Speaking to presspersons here on Friday, he said the date of her visit would be finalised soon. Rahul Gandhi’s recent tour of the State would also prove beneficial to the Congress, he said and added that it was too early to predict the outcome of the elections.
