District Congress chief Yogendra Mishra said, "On Wednesday, Rahul would reach Amethi late in the evening."

The next day, he would meet people at Munshiganj guest house and address a public meeting in Jafarganj in Jagdishpur Assembly constituency.

Rahul would also tour some villages, Mishra said.

On 2 September, the Amethi MP would attend a meeting of district vigilance and monitoring committee before leaving for Delhi.

The Amethi visit comes ahead of Rahul's proposed mahayatra from Deoria in eastern Uttar Pradesh to Delhi from 6 September traversing as many as 233 Assembly constituencies to reach out to people ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh polls slated for early next year.

The Congress vice-president would travel through 39 districts of Uttar Pradesh, covering 2,500 km in the nearly month-long exercise.

The mahayatra is a programme organised after the successful roadshow of Congress President Sonia Gandhi earlier this month.
