SINGAPORE, Mar 8 (Agencies): Congress president Rahul Gandhi is slated to start his two-day visit to Singapore on Thursday. The Gandhi scion is likely to address a gathering of the Indian diaspora in the country. He is scheduled to stay in Singapore on March 8 and March 9, following which he will leave for Malaysia on March 10.

Apart from addressing members of the Indian community, the Congress president is also slated hold a closed-door meeting with Indian professionals and industrialists during his visit.

During his visit to Malaysia as well, the Congress president will address people of Indian origin living in the country. It must be noted that Malaysia has a considerably large number of Indian population. Rahul Gandhi is expected to meet businessmen as well as workers of Indian origin.

The itinerary of the Congress president’s visit to the country is believed to be similar to that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visits to foreign countries. Just like PM Modi addresses members of Indian community in different countries, Rahul has also been following a similar modus operandi in recent past.

In the recent past, the Gandhi scion addressed members of Indian diaspora in US and Bahrain. In Bahrain, the Congress chief had attended a meeting of Global Organisation of People of India Origin, where members from over 50 countries had participated.

Addressing the gathering, Rahul had attacked PM Modi and his economic policies.

The Congress leader has often been criticised by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for targeting the Narendra Modi government on foreign land.

During his visit to Bahrain in January, he had criticised PM Modi over Goods and Services Tax (GST) and demonetisation. Highlighting how job creation in India was at an eight-year-low, the Congress president had said the two threats facing India under the Narendra Modi government are the inability to create jobs and the rise in the forces of hatred and division.
