Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will on Wednesday embark upon a three-day visit to his parliamentary constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.

“Will be in Amethi from 31st Aug-2nd Sept. Looking forward to meeting everyone!," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

According to UP Congress leaders, Rahul would reach Amethi late in the evening on Wednesday and will meet people at Munshiganj guest house on Thursday. He will also address a public meeting in Jafarganj in Jagdishpur Assembly constituency. He will then tour some villages.

On September 2, the Amethi MP would 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.
