Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan will go to the polls later this year. The Congress president visited Chhattisgarh for two days a week ago and his Madhya Pradesh rally is scheduled one year to the day that five farmers were killed in police firing during a farmers' protest in Mandsaur. At that time as well, Rahul Gandhi had tried to make his way to Mandsaur using a flight, a car, a motorbike and eventually by foot, but had failed to do so.
