Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will pay a three-day visit to his Amethi parliamentary constituency from August 30. “Will be in Amethi from 31st Aug-2nd Sept. Looking forward to meeting everyone! (sic),” he tweeted. District Congress chief Yogendra Mishra said, “On Wednesday, Rahul would reach Amethi late in the evening.”

The next day, he would meet people at Munshiganj guest house and address a public meeting in Jafarganj in Jagdishpur Assembly constituency.

Rahul would also tour some villages, Mishra said.

On September 2, the Amethi MP will attend a meeting of district vigilance and monitoring committee before leaving for Delhi.

The Amethi visit comes ahead of Rahul’s proposed mahayatra from Deoria in eastern Uttar Pradesh to Delhi from September 6 traversing as many as 233 Assembly constituencies to reach out to people ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh polls slated for early next year.

The Congress Vice President would travel through 39 districts of Uttar Pradesh, covering 2,500 km in the nearly month-long exercise.

The mahayatra is a programme organised after the successful roadshow of Congress President Sonia Gandhi earlier this month.
