Rahul Gandhi To Take Part In “Black day” Protest In Surat:- Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has unveiled his plans to participate in a candle-light vigil as part of the Opposition parties’ “Black Day” protest in Surat. The Surat city in the state of Gujarat India is well known as the textile and diamond capital of the country.
The AICC Vice President is expected to reach Surat this morning. Sources in the Congress said he will have informal meetings with the industry representatives and workers during the day.
“He will have formal interaction with traders in Adajan area of the city in the evening,” they said.
“He will participate in a candle light vigil on the ‘Black Day’ near Vivekanand statue in Chowk Bazar area of Surat city after a formal meeting with traders,” they said.
The proposed visit and the programme of the party vice president was confirmed by Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi. The Congress and other Opposition parties have decided to observe November 8, as “Black Day”. And it is on this day, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year announced demonetization.
As the state is going for polls next month, Gandhi’s decision to take part in the protest in Gujarat is significant.
