A couple of days ago, the Congress had released a list of 30 star campaigners who will visit Tamil Nadu ahead of the polls on April 6. The list included Congress president Sonia Gandhi, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Leader Of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, former Union Minister P Chidambaram, and AICC in-charge of Tamil Nadu Dinesh Gundu Rao.
On Wednesday, president of Tamil Nadu Congress Committee KS Alagiri took to Twitter and said he was postponing his election campaigning from March 25 to 29 to make arrangements for Rahul and Gandhi, who would be visiting Tamil Nadu to campaign.
