New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Jan 18: With an eye to the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, the Congress High Command is in no mood to take a chance and therefore the two supreme Congress bosses are kick-starting the campaign.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi are likely to visit their respective parliamentary constituencies Amethi and Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh on January 23-24, according to the party insiders.During his two-day visit, the Congress president is expected to take part in several party programmes and a meeting of the district vigilance and monitoring committee, Amethi district Congress spokesman Anil Singh said.UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi is also expected to attend the district vigilance and monitoring committee meeting in her constituency Rae Bareli, Singh said.The Gandhis will arrive at the Fursatganj airport on January 23, from where they will leave for their respective constituencies. They will depart for Delhi on January 24, Singh added.
A couple of days back BJP leader Smriti Irani had also visited Amethi and Rahul Gandhi was also supposed to visit the place the same day, though the two had two different timings.
But at the last hour, Rahul had to postpone the visit as he had to participate in the Rafale Deal discussions the same day.
