To galvanise the party ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the key state of Uttar Pradesh, Congress President Sonia Gandhi will be on a two-day visit to her constituency Rae Bareli from tomorrow.

Gandhi will meet former MLAs, Pradesh Congress Committee members, office-bearers of city and district units, front organisations on the first day of her visit, vice-president of the party's state unit Satyadev Tripathi said today.

On the second day, she would meet the public to hear their grievances.

This will be Gandhi's first visit to the state after the last session of the 15th Lok Sabha concluded on Friday.

Uttar Pradesh with 80 Lok Sabha seats is significant for the party which won 22 seats in the 2009 general elections.
