New Delhi, Feb 3: Ahead of Narendra Modi's rally in Odisha, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi seems to be ready to surprise the state. According to sources, Congress planned a two-day visit in the state ahead of BJP's PM candidate Modi's scheduled rally on Feb 11.

Rahul is likely to address six public meetings at different places on February 9 and 10, party sources said, adding Rahul is unlikely to visit Bhubaneswar.

Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee president Jaydev Jena said detailed programmes for Rahulji's visit was being worked out.

Rahulji is likely to address three meetings in the coastal belt and nearby areas

"Rahulji is likely to address three meetings in the coastal belt and nearby areas and another three in southern and western Odisha," he said.

Claiming that Modi's public meeting would have no impact on the people of the state, Jena said both Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have emotional attachments with the people of Odisha.

Sources said Rahul Gandhi would address meetings at Salipur in Cuttack district, Duburi in Jajpur district, coal town of Talcher Khariar Road in Nuapada district, Bisam Katak in Rayagada district and Berhampur town in Ganjam district.
