Bhubaneswar, Aug 25: Two days after environment ministry rejected to give clearance to Vedanta mining project, Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi is planning to organize a tribal rally in near Niyamgiri Hills in Orissa on Aug 26.

"Rahulji will interact with the tribal people and address a public meeting, a bid on his part to keep tribal youths away from Maoists," state Youth Congress leader.

The Youth Congress leader informed that both Rahul and other Congress leaders are concerned about the less privileged tribal.

According to the Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi would celebrate the Adivasi Adhikar Diwas.

His visit to the tribal region would be the attempt to make people understand that UPA government won't encourage any activities, which would harm tribal groups (PTG) like Dangaria and Kutia Kandhas.

Rahul had visited Lanjigarh area in Mar 2008.

Tight security arrangements have been made in the area for Rahul's visit with deployment of adequate force.
