In her first public interaction in Rae Bareli, her parliamentary constituency, after the Lok Sabha elections, Congress president Sonia Gandhi will go door-to-door in villages during a two day visit beginning September 1.
During her last visit in June, soon after the party’s rout in Lok Sabha polls, she had only met party workers and had hosted a dinner for them to thank them for “her victory with a huge margin”.
However, during her visit this time, Sonia is scheduled to visit villages in her constituency to directly interact with people and enquire about their problems along with progress of development and welfare schemes.
All other parties have started their preparations for 2017 Assembly elections in the state. Congress could not win even one of the five Assembly seats in Rae Bareli during the last elections in the state.
The least number of women candidates have been fielded by the Congress which has given tickets to just five women contestants.
