Rahul Gandhi to address tribal rally in Orissa

By Abdul Nisar

Bhubaneswar, Aug 26 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi will address a tribal rally near Niyamgiri Hills in Orissa's Kalahandi District today where Vedanta Aluminum Limited (VAL) has set up a refinery.

According to reports, Rahul will interact with the tribal people and address a public meeting, a bid on his part to keep tribal youths away from the Maoists.

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

He had visited Lanjigarh area in March 2008.

Tight security arrangements have been made in the area with deployment of adequate force. (ANI)
