Rahul Gandhi to begin his three-day Amethi visit

New Delhi : Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will today begin his three-day visit to his parliamentary constituency Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi.

Rahul will also visit his mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Raebareli.

Rahul’s trip triggered headlines after Amethi’s district authorities suggested him to postpone his trip due to security concerns.

On October 2, Amethi’s District Magistrate Yogesh Kumar had clarified that he just asked to reschedule the Congress vice-president’s visit to the district as the latter’s security protocol is very high-level and they don’t want to leave any loop holes.

Earlier, Kumar had requested the Congress district president to reschedule visit of Rahul Gandhi, from October 4 to October 6, in the view of Muharram and Durga idol immersion. (ANI)
