Sonia to visit Rae Bareli tomorrow
Congress president Sonia Gandhi will be paying a two-days visit to her Lok Sabha constituency Rae Bareli on November 7.
Expected to be accompanied by daughter Priyanka, Gandhi will be in Rae Bareli for flagging off a new batch of rail coaches manufactured at the Rail Coach Factory, Lal Ganj. She will also lay the foundation stone of a double-line railway track between Rae Bareli and Utarthiya station. Gandhi will also be handing over appointment letters and addressing those who had given up their land for setting up the Rail Coach factory.
The Congress president will attend the convocation of National Institute of Fashion Technology and lay foundation stone of its new buildings. She will also lay the foundation stone of low cost residential homes in Barwaripur, Sultanpur.
On November 8, Sonia will meet people and attend a meeting of the district vigilance and monitoring committee before returning to New Delhi.
During her stay, she is also scheduled to visit Footware Design and Development Institute (FDDI), Fursatganj.
Though Priyanka, who has been taking meetings of local party leaders in Rae Bareli in the past, is expected to accompany her mother on the visit, the exact schedule of Priyana is not clear. Gandhi's representative K L Sharma has already reached Rae Bareli for making arrangements for her visit.
