Listing out various local issues being faced by the people of Wayanad, Rahul Gandhi said human-animal conflict and night travel ban are perplexing problems in Wayanad and the Congress was committed to resolve it. He also specially mentioned about the Nilambur railway issue and said it would be easily resolved when the Congress comes to power in Delhi.

On his way to Wayanad, Gandhi met with a group of students of Nilgiri College of Arts and Science in Thaloor, Tamil Nadu. He is fighting the April 26 Lok Sabha polls from Wayanad, seeking a successive term.

During the visit in Wayanad, Gandhi is also likely to hold a meeting with Mananthavady bishop, which is politically significant in the wake of raging controversy over the recent screening of the movie 'The Kerala Story' by some churches. Later in the evening, the Congress leader would address a rally of the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in neighbouring Kozhikode district.

Gandhi, who is seeking his electoral luck again from Wayanad, came to the constituency for the second time after the date of the Lok Sabha polls were announced. The Congress leader had kicked off the poll campaign in Wayanad early this month by filing his nomination papers and holding a massive road show.
