Kozhikode: Union Minister Smriti Irani will not campaign against AICC president Rahul Gandhi in Wayanad Lok Sabha Constituency as she is down with acute back pain and is undergoing treatment, according to a press release of NDA.
Instead of Smriti Irani, Union Minister for Def-ense Nirmala Sitaraman would lead a road show at Sulthan Bathery on Sunday. Arriving in a special aircraft at Karipur airport, Nirmala Sitaraman would land at St Mary’s College ground in a chopper at 10 25 am. After attending a public meeting at Sulthan Bathery, she would also lead the road-show seeking votes for NDA candidate Thushar Vellappalli at Gandhi junction.
Though there were reports that BJP national president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would campaign against Rahul Gandhi in Wayanad, it has been informed that none of them would be coming to the constituency, NDA leaders said.
