Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has decided to take a break from the ongoing Parliament session and meet villagers in those booths of his parliamentary constituency Amethi where he got the maximum votes in the Lok Sabha elections, it has been learnt.
Rahul’s day-long visit on Friday would also see him hosting an iftar party in Salon assembly for workers and state leaders.
Of the five assembly constituencies under Amethi, Rahul got the maximum votes (88,111) from Salon. Earlier, Rahul would randomly choose villages for his visit, irrespective of the voting pattern. But the election results appear to have brought a shift in his style of visits, which, sources in Amethi say, is to send out the message that those who had voted for him would be on his priority list.
The Congress leader’s visit comes within a week of Union Human Resource Development minister Smriti Irani visiting Amethi on July 19 where she also promised to take up development projects for the constituency.
Irani was BJP’s candidate from Amethi but had lost to Rahul (his third win from here) by a margin of 1.07 lakh votes.

Ever since Irani’s visit, Congress workers in Amethi have been expecting Rahul to be more frequent with his visits instead of the planned one visit every two months.
Friday’s would be Rahuls’ second visit since the election results were announced. He had last visited Amethi on May 21 accompanied by his sister Priyanka Vadra.
