In the days preceding the visit of Congress President Rahul Gandhi to the UAE tomorrow, the Congress party is expecting a huge audience to be present at the venue where he is addressing the Indian Community. Gandhi will be addressing the audience at the Dubai Intrenational Cricket Stadium at 4 pm tomorrow.
The congress party believes that the audience will be much more expansive compared to the number of people who attended the address of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the same premises. Numerous vehicles have been deployed across the emirates to ferry people to the venue where Gandhi is addressing the Indian Community.
In addition to Congress-affiliated organisations, there is active participation from the UAEKMCC as well, which is why the number of people expected to attend the meeting is being projected to be so massive. Though there is no fixed target for the audience, concerted efforts are being made to attract more and more number of people to the venue.
In the wake of the changing attitudes towards Rahul Gandhi in national and international circles, especially after the sterling performance of the Congress party in the state elections, it is anticipated that Gandhi will be addressing the audience in the backdrop of the possibility that he may be the future Prime Minister of India.
National televsion channels in India are also gradually shifting their focus to Gandhi and his increasingly significant role in the reversal of fortunes for the congress party. Even Republic TV which demonstrates a leaning towards the ruling government has begun to view Rahul Gandhi through a relatively positive prism.
