New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi is on a two-day tour of his parliamentary constituency Amethi starting Wednesday.

During his stay, he is scheduled to meet representatives of gram panchayats at Fursatganj. He will also take part in the swearing-in of newly elected bar members in Gauriganj, his representative Chandrakant Dubey had said.

Rahul will address a 'nukkad sabha' at Haliyapur and stay the night at a Bhueymau guest house, where he will meet party workers on the second day of his visit before leaving for Delhi, Dubey had said.

He was scheduled to visit Amethi on 4 January, but it was cancelled in view of the Winter Session of Parliament.

His visit would have clashed with Union minister Smriti Irani's Amethi trip, which was also scheduled for the same day and was being seen as the first major political face-off ahead of the general elections.

The Congress chief will also tour states like Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in the coming days.
