During his three-day visit to the State from February 10, Congress president Rahul Gandhi will hop onto the bus for the campaign from the second day.

Congress party president Rahul Gandhi, now on a two-day trip to poll-bound state Meghalaya attended a "Festival of Peace" music concert with a crowd of more than 4,000 people on Tuesday, wearing a jacket that he was later mocked for.

The Congress, however, laughed off the BJP's jibe.

'I don't know whether to laugh or to cry at the desperation of the BJP.

Senior Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury, however, reacted sharply to BJP's tweets, and said that the BJP was leading a "suit-boot ki sarkar" at the Centre and has no moral authority to question Mr Gandhi.

But among the three million Global Positioning System data points released are military bases in Afghanistan and Syria. Former British army officer Nick Waters tweeted that the information "could be turned into actionable intelligence".

He said every leader of the state congress including the chief minister and PCC chief has been given responsibility to look after one booth each.

However, BJP lashed out at Gandhi's attire, claiming the price of Rahul's jacket was around Rs. You mean to say they have no other work than to search online for jacket rates. "I can show you the same jacket for Rs 700".

This concert will be hosted by both the ace leaders of the party-Congress President Rahul Gandhi and CM Mukul Sangma.

Rahul said, RSS idea is aimed at disempowering women.

"So @OfficeOfRG, soot (pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with "black" money fleeced from Meghalaya State exchequer by rampant corruption?" Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient government in Meghalaya. Your indifference mocks us!

The suit referred to by Gandhi in his poll speeches was a monogrammed suit worn by the PM during his talks with then US President Barack Obama in India.
