Victory over 99 seats has given a second wind to the Congress and its alliance. The leader of opposition Rahul Gandhi is being seen in an aggressive and active mode. The ways and strategies of Rahul Gandhi have completely altered after winning 99 seats in the Lok Sabha. He is consistently engaged in tours and meeting people.

Besides, he is not missing a single opportunity to take aim at the Modi government and BJP at the center. Furthermore, he continues to travel extensively across Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Assam, and Manipur, actively delivering political messages. His recent Gujarat tour saw him directly challenging the BJP, while in Assam and Manipur, he engaged in overt political activities. His trips are not just grabbing attention but also influencing political discussions. This is also bothering the members of his own political party. He raised concerns about the government, prompting BJP criticism for politicizing sensitive issues in Manipur.

Despite this, Rahul Gandhi effectively addressed multiple issues, focusing on the Northeast and Assam during his visit. He visited flood-affected areas, meeting with affected individuals and advocating for their needs in Parliament. These tours reflect Rahul’s growing political acumen and his strategic approach to engaging with current affairs and public sentiment.

Rahul Gandhi’s frequent tours across states like Uttar Pradesh are not only making waves within the BJP but also enhancing his own popularity. These visits have stirred unease among BJP ranks while also keeping his political allies on edge. Currently on his third consecutive tour of Uttar Pradesh within a month, Rahul Gandhi is strategically positioning himself for the 2027 elections, despite the polls being several years away. The Congress party’s recent collaboration with the Samajwadi Party (SP) proved fruitful in the Lok Sabha elections, securing six seats and increasing their overall vote share.

Looking ahead, Congress is now aiming to win at least four seats out of the upcoming ten by-elections. This ambition follows their modest performance in the 2022 assembly elections, where they managed to secure only one seat. Rahul’s proactive approach and strategic engagements underline his growing influence and readiness to bolster Congress’s electoral prospects in Uttar Pradesh and beyond.

Not only BJP the agility of Rahul Gandhi is also creating uneasiness in the Samajwadi Party. Rahul Gandhi’s frequent tours are consistently making headlines, even though he isn’t actively causing tension among political rivals. His recent visits to Aligarh and Hathras, where he met with victims, garnered significant attention. During these visits, Rahul raised concerns about compensation issues and pledged to address them in Parliament.

His planned tour of Manipur has been postponed, but despite criticism from the BJP, Rahul has effectively communicated his political messages nationwide. He intends to continue this momentum into the upcoming budget session.

Recently, Rahul visited Rae Bareli for a one-day tour and will meet with locals in Rae Bareli and Amethi on Tuesday. Initially a visit to express gratitude, this tour will now also focus on assessing potential assembly seats in the area where Congress currently holds no seats.

While Congress and Samajwadi Party maintain a positive relationship, their alliance will face its first electoral test in Maharashtra and Haryana. The SP is preparing to contest over 300 seats, while discussions continue between Congress, NCP, and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra regarding seat sharing. Rahul’s role in managing these alliances will be crucial moving forward.
