Rahul's visit comes after Shiv Sena warned him against visiting Maharashtra for his 'Mumbai for all' remark.
On Thursday, Feb 4, Sena chief Bal Thackeray had said that his activists have prepared to greet him with black flags wherever he goes.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Police and state administration are on high alert to ensure Rahul's visit goes off smoothly.
According to a Congress spokesman, around 11 am Gandhi will address students at the Bhaidas Auditorium in the glamorous Juhu area where students from various cities have been invited.
"He will deliver a short address to them before a select group of students have individual interaction with him," said the office-bearer.
In the afternoon, Rahul will go to Ghatkopar, the north-eastern part of Mumbai where the Ramabai Ambedkar Nagar slums are located.
He will garland a statue of Bharat Ratna Babasaheb Ambedkar there, pay homage and then interact with select slum youth.
