New Delhi:

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi to start his 3-day tour of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday. During the tour, Rahul is all set to hold ‘chaupals’ with farmers.

Rahul is expected to meet party workers and locals at Amethi and Raebareli.

“On October 4, he will hold chaupal in Kathora village of Jagdishpur area in Amethi and will also visit different villages of his constituency,” said Chandrakant Dubey, Rahul’s representative.

The Congress vice president’s trip to his parliamentary constituency generated headlines after district authorities in Amethi suggested a postponement citing security concerns.  However, they gave the go-ahead on Tuesday.

Giving details of his schedule, Congress leaders said Gandhi would land in Lucknow tomorrow and leave for Amethi by road, stopping at villages to meet people before staying the night at the Munshiganj guest house.

On Oct 5, he is scheduled to hold a ‘janta darshan’ at the guest house and meet party workers at Rajiv Gandhi college in Tiloi and in Salon before calling it a day at the Bhuemau (Raebareli) guest house.

On the last day of his visit, he will hold a ‘janta darshan’ in Raebareli and meet workers there.
