New Delhi: Former Congress president and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi returned to India on Sunday night from his personal visit abroad, informed party sources on Monday.

The Congress leader held a meeting today evening on the subject with General Secretary KC Venugopal and Senior Observer of AICC for Goa P Chidambaram through video conferencing and took stock of the poll preparedness and campaign strategy in the state.

Earlier, a meeting of Rahul Gandhi was planned in Goa on January 16 which was postponed by the party due to rising COVID-19 cases.

The Wayanad MP had gone abroad in the last week of December. Congress general secretary Randeep Surjewala had earlier said that Rahul Gandhi is on “a brief personal visit”.

“He has gone on a personal visit abroad and will be back shortly and at the same time he took on BJP and asked them not to spread rumours about it,” Surjewala told ANI.

His visit came when electoral preparations in five poll-bound states are in full swing and Congress has a crucial test not only in terms of its ability to contain the BJP but also for the space as the main challenger to the ruling party at the Centre.

The Assembly elections in Goa are scheduled to be held on February 14. The counting of votes in all states will take place on March 10.

The poll dates were announced by Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra at a press conference in Delhi on Saturday. With the announcement of poll dates, the model code of conduct has come into force.
