Rahul Gandhi will visit Amethi in UP today as part of his three day sojourn to the BJP ruled state after a six months gap.
This will be Rahul’s first visit to Amethi after the congress suffered a humiliating defeat in the state assembly election early this year.
Because of his absence from his constituency dozens of posters describing local member of parliament and congress VP Rahul as missing came up in Amethi in August.
The posters carried the Gandhi’s picture written below which was a reward for anyone who could trace their missing MP.
The posters however were not attributed to any individual or organisation.
Rahul’s absence had led to anger and disappointment among the voters of Amethi said.
The posters also said that Rahul had insulted his voters with his behaviour.
While congress workers in the district accused the BJP for the posters many rued that Rahul had lost interest in Amethi.
Rahul is planning to touch his base once again with the voters today.
Rahul is slated to hold chaupals with farmers as well as meetings with party workers and locals in his parliament.
Rahul’s Amethi visit has already created lot of controversies after the district authorities asked the Congress VP to reschedule his visit.
After facing criticism from the congress for asking Rahul to postpone his visit, the district administration on Monday said it was ready for the party VP’s three day tour beginning from Wednesday.
