I understand your question. There is some practical reason in your suggestion too. In Maharashtra,Congress have a great ally in Sharad Pawear who would not take it too kindly because the allies are almost neck to neck in strength ........NCP 71, Congress 69. If Rahul Gandhi makes frequent visits, the NCP leadership will cry foul like what Mamata Banerjee did in West Bengal. For an inexplicable reason Rahul Gandhi started coming to West Bengal quite frequently and later stopped under her pressure. Same will happen to him if he frequents to Maharashtra. Congressmen may think he is a great leader but common people discard him as a leader. He comes to every state even today as a visitor and not a dependable leader. The less he moves, the better is for congress.
