    Giving the details of Gandhi's visit, Mishra told PTI that the Congress president will hold discussions with selected activists over issues related to the party and other political developments at Fursatganj under the Tiloi assembly segment on July 4.

    In the evening, Gandhi will meet a delegation of small traders at Gauriganj, he added. Mishra said Gandhi will spend the night at the party office in Gauriganj, the district headquarters - a departure from the tradition of staying at the guest house of Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital at Munshiganj. The Congress has repeatedly been attacked by arch-rival BJP in the past for allegedly flouting rules by using the guesthouse whose land was leased by the government for charity work.

    On July 5, the three-time Amethi MP will meet a group of farmers in Tala village on the Amethi-Gauriganj road to take stock of their problems and will try to offer solutions on the spot, Mishra added. He said the Congress president may leave Amethi after this programme.

    Gandhi may also discuss matters relating to the next year's parliamentary elections, some party activists said on condition of anonymity. This election will be of great importance for the Congress' future and for Gandhi himself, they said.
