Rahul is on a South India tour to strengthen the opposition's campaign against the Narendra Modi government.
After visiting Telangana and Tamil Nadu, where he attended Karunanidhi's birthday celebrations, Rahul is now in Andhra to address a rally in Guntur.
According to reports, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and a host of other leaders are also likely to attend the public meeting at Guntur to launch an attack on the TDP and the BJP.
JDU leader Sharad Yadav, CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, secretary D Raja and others from parties like Trinamool Congress will also be attending the public meeting.
