Rahul Gandhi on a three-day Amethi visit from today ahead of UP Mahayatra
The Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to visit his constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh today. During his three day Amethi visit from August 31 to September 2, Gandhi is expected to raise the issue of multiple development projects which were started by UPA but have been stalled by the BJP-led NDA regime at the Centre.

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

According to reports, Gandhi will be staying at the Munshigunj Guest House in Amethi and is scheduled to attend several political and non-political functions along with addressing a public meeting in Jafarganj and Jagdishpur. He will also be chairing a meeting of party leaders at Munshiganj.

On September 2, Rahul will attend a meeting of district vigilance and monitoring committee. This visit to his constituency in Uttar Pradesh by Rahul assumes significance as the state goes to polls next year.

He is also scheduled to launch a month-long "mahayatra" in Uttar Pradesh. Starting September 6, the yatra will cover 39 districts, the Congress announced on Monday.

The Congress General Secretary and state in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad had said the yatra would start from Rudrapur in the state's Deoria district and would culminate in Delhi.

"Rahul Gandhi would cover 2,500 km by road, traversing through 39 districts, covering 55 Lok Sabha constituencies and 223 assembly seats," Azad said.

The mahayatra has been organised after Sonia Gandhi's successful road-show earlier this month.
