During her day-long visit, Sonia Gandhi would address an election meeting in Nandmahar area of the constituency and then return to Delhi, Congress district unit president Yogendra Misra said.
The party’s local unit is making an all-out effort to make Congress president's visit here a grand success.
Sister Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law Robert Vadra recently campaigned for Rahul when he had arrived here to file his nominations papers. Sonia also accompanied Rahul when he filed his nomination papers.
With television actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Aadmi Party's Kumar Vishwas challenging Rahul, the Congress appears to be taking no chances in its preparations during the run-up to the polls.
Irani had earlier lashed out at her Congress rival.
“Development is not visible in Amethi. Rahul Gandhi has done nothing to develop the area,” she said.
Vishwas had also cornered the Congress vice-president earlier and alleged that Rahul Gandhi knew nothing about Amethi. He said that he would opt out of the Lok Sabha elections if the Congress leader was able to name all the 17 blocks in the constituency.
