Amethi: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi arrived here this morning on a day's visit to his parliamentary constituency along with chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah.

Arriving at the Fursatganj airport here, Rahul had a brief interaction with local residents. He also asked his party workers for a cup of tea in view of the cold winds but as they rushed to offer him one, he moved ahead saying he would have it later as he was running short of time.
