New Delhi : After registering a massive win in the Lok Sabha Elections from the Wayanad constituency, Congress President Rahul Gandhi will be starting his three-day visit on Friday.
To thank the electorates, Gandhi, who won the seat by a record margin of 4.31 lakh votes, is expected to hold six roadshows in major towns across Wayanad district.
His first roadshow will be held at Kalpetta town at 10.30 AM, second at Kambalkkad (11.45 AM). Other would be held at Panamaram (12.30pm), Mananthavadi (2pm), Pulpalli (3 pm) and Sultan Batheri (4:30 PM).
He is also scheduled to address two public meetings in the Wayanad on Saturday and Sunday.
"During his three-day visit he will also be meeting the family of farmers who committed suicide recently," said Wayanad District Congress Committee (DCC) president.
“Uncertainty at the helm is really affecting the party rank and file. We hope he will feel rejuvenated with support from his new turf and surge ahead. After his Wayanad trip, we want him to travel the width and breadth of the country,” the leader said.

I also extend my thanks to each and every Congress worker for their hard work and efforts in this election,” the Congress president had said in a tweet.
