"Both Rahul and Priyanka will be among you all very soon," Sonia Gandhi said while replying to questions on whereabouts of the party Vice President. She, however, did not specify the exact timing of his return.

Party sources have earlier said that Rahul, who went on the sabbatical on February 22, is likely to return in April after which the issue of leadership is expected to gain momentum.

Leaders have all along maintained that Rahul will be back in the "proximate future" but have given no specific date.

Earlier this week, posters had emerged in Amethi declaring that the local MP (Rahul Gandhi) was "missing".

Pasted at markets, railway and bus stations, the posters titled "Missing Amethi MP" asked people to launch a manhunt to find the "missing" leader.
