Lucknow: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will kick-start his three-day visit to his constituency Amethi from Wednesday.

The Gandhi scion's trip to his parliamentary constituency generated headlines after district authorities in Amethi suggested a postponement citing security concerns. However, they gave the permission to visit his parliamentary constituency on Monday.

Earlier, the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police had urged the Amethi MP to postpone his visit due to security reasons on account of Durga Puja, Muharram and Gandhi Jayanti.

The letter angered the Congress workers and party leaders alleged that the administration was trying to prevent Rahul Gandhi from visiting Amethi.

Gandhi would land in Lucknow on Wednesday and leave for Amethi by road, stopping at villages to meet people before staying the night at the Munshiganj guest house.

On October 5, he is scheduled to hold a 'janta darshan' at the guest house and meet party workers at Rajiv Gandhi college in Tiloi and in Salon before calling it a day at the Bhuemau (Raebareli) guest house.

On the last day of his visit, he will hold a 'janta darshan' in Raebareli and meet workers there.
