Congress president Rahul Gandhi will arrive his parliamentary constituency Amethi on Wednesday on a two-day visit, a party leader said.

Gandhi, during his stay, 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 said.

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

On January 4, Gandhi was scheduled to visit Amethi. However, his visit was cancelled due to 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.

Meanwhile, the proposed visit of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi to her Lok Sabha constituency Rae Bareli has been cancelled, her representative KL Sharma said, citing "unavoidable reasons".

Amethi and Rae Bareli are the two Lok Sabha seats left out for the Congress by the BSP-SP alliance in the state.

Lok Sabha elections 2019 is scheduled to take place in the months of April-May.
