Rahul to visit Amethi next week

New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi will make a two-day visit to Amethi next week in what would be his first trip to his Lok Sabha constituency after taking over the reins of the party.

Gandhi took over as Congress chief from Sonia Gandhi on 16 December last year, when she handed over the charge to her son after heading the grand old party for 19 years.

Gandhi will be in Amethi on 15 and 16 January, party sources said.

Gandhi returned from Bahrain on Tuesday, after he addressed NRIs settled in the region at the conference of The Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) on 8 January.

The Congress chief also met Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa and Foreign Minister Prince Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa during his visit to the country, where he was the state guest.

“Thank you Bahrain for an inspiring and educational trip.

Special thanks to HRH @bahraincpnews, HE @khalidalkhalifa, HH @khalidbinhamad, HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Mubarak Al Khalifa, GOPIO and its participants, the Bahraini people and the Indian community for their love and hospitality,” he tweeted yesterday after his return.
