Shillong: Congress presidential election candidate Dr. Shashi Tharoor will be here in Meghalaya on Saturday to campaign for the upcoming poll to the top party post.
Tharoor is pitted against veteran Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member, Mallikarjun Kharge, who is seen emerging as the favourite to win the poll for party president.
“As per the itinerary, he (Tharoor) will be arriving here on Saturday and then interact with Congress delegates at Congress Bhavan in the afternoon,” a Congress leader said.
However, it is unclear if the former diplomat-turned politician will halt in Shillong.
The election will be held on October 17 and counting of votes will take place on October 19.
