Vidisha, May 13 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee President Suresh Pachouri has said Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's recent visits to Bundelkhand region and other tribal areas of the state should not be 'politicised'.
While addressing a public meeting here last night, Mr Pachouri said following the family tradition and with the objective of keeping in touch with the downtrodden Mr Gandhi conducted his 'discover India tour'.
''Earlier, Mrs Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi also conducted 'discover India tour' to acquaint themselves with problems of common people,'' he said, adding that Rahul's visits should not be given political colour.
He said in the coming Assembly election party would give ticket to the eligible people and would not succumb to kinship and other pressures. Besides, tickets would not be provided at the eleventh hour.
''Congress is fully poised for the Assembly election,'' Mr Pachauri added.
