Amethi: The scheduled visit of Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday to his parliamentary constituency of Amethi for the first time as Congress vice president has been postponed due to inclement weather, party sources said.

"The two-day tour (by Rahul) has been postponed and will now start from Thursday," Congress spokesman Akhilesh Pratap Singh said. The region has received quite a bit of rain since Monday evening.

The Congress vice president has apologised to the people of his constituency for the inconvenience caused by the postponement, Singh added. Elaborate arrangements had been made to give Rahul a grand welcome for his first visit to Amethi since his elevation.
