‘Amethi Main Aa Raha Hoon,’ Says Rahul Enroute to His Constituency
Gandhi was scheduled to visit Amethi on 4 January but it was cancelled due to the Winter Session of Parliament.
“Amethi main aa raha hoon,” posted Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday, 23 January, ahead of his two-day visit to Amethi, his parliamentary constituency.
He wrote, “Amethi main aa raha hoon. Ghar ke aangan mein apno ke saath baat-vichar hogi. Khushiyon ki is kahaani ke rang aapko tasveeron ke madhyam se dikhata rahoonga (Amethi, I am coming. Will discuss and debate with my own people in my home state. I will keep sharing the happy moments through pictures.)
During his stay, Gandhi is scheduled to meet representatives of gram panchayats at Fursatganj. He will also take part in the swearing-in of newly elected Bar members in Gauriganj, his representative Chandrakant Dubey said.
Gandhi will address a ‘nukkad sabha’ at Haliyapur and stay the night at Bhueymau guest house, where he will meet party workers on the second day of his visit before leaving for Delhi, Dubey said.
Gandhi was scheduled to visit Amethi on 4 January but it was cancelled due to the Winter session of Parliament.
His visit would have clashed with Union Minister Smriti Irani’s Amethi trip, which was also scheduled for the same day and was being seen as the first major political face-off ahead of the general elections.
Meanwhile, the proposed visit of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi to her Lok Sabha constituency Rae Bareli has been cancelled, her representative KL Sharma said, citing "unavoidable reasons".
Amethi and Rae Bareli are the two Lok Sabha seats left out for the Congress by the BSP-SP alliance in the state.
