Ahmedabad: Congress on Monday termed Sonia Gandhi’s Rajkot visit as a routine affair and not a formal political rally before the assembly elections. “She had visited Rajkot with her husband Rajiv Gandhi in the past. She wanted to visit Saurashtra once again. This is not a formal campaigning rally in Gujarat,” said Arjun Modhwadia, president of Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee in a press conference at Rajkot. Congress president is visiting Rajkot on October 3.
"She will be visiting Ramkrishna Ashram, Kasturba Gandhi no delo and then address a public rally here," he added.
According to the schedule available, Sonia Gandhi is arriving at Rajkot at 10 am and from the airport she will drive to Ramkrishna Ashram. Later she will visit Kasuturba Gandhi no delo, a famous site of Mahatma’s memorabilia.
