Congress leader Ghannshyam Singh said, "Rahul Gandhi would be visiting the injured on Thursday afternoon at around 2.40 pm in the hospital.”

Gandhi would also address two public rallies in Madhya Pradesh later in the day, said party officials. The Congress vice-president will first speak at the Lalpur Ground in Shahdol and then at the Mela Ground in Gwalior.

The stampede at the Ratangarh temple on the last day of the Navratras was triggered by a rumour that the bridge on the Sindh River had collapsed.
