Rahul would address an election meeting at Chennai on 7 May and in Coimbatore and Madurai the same day, he said.

The TNCC President and Congress candidates and senior leaders were in Coimbatore to inspect the VOC Grounds where Gandhi is scheduled to address the meeting.

There was also a proposal for him to campaign in Tirunelveli and Nagercoil, he said.
