Nagpur district Congress committee president Vikas Thakre said preparations for the public meeting have begun. This will be the Congress president's first election rally in Vidarbha.
During last elections in 2009, Gandhi had campaigned for Wasnik in Kamptee in rural Nagpur, about 15 kms from here.

From Nagpur, she will proceed to neighbouring Bhandara-Gondia Lok Sabha constituency from where NCP heavyweight and Union Heavy Industries Minister Praful Patel is contesting.
The election rally is likely to be held at Lakhani in Bhandara district, sources said.

The Congress is hoping that Gandhi's rally would give the party campaign the much needed momentum.

Party vice-president Rahul Gandhi has already toured Wardha and Gadchiroli Lok Sabha constituency, from where Sagar Meghe and sitting MLA Dr Namdeo Usendi are respective Congress nominees.
