"My two-day trip to Amethi that had to begin from today has been postponed for January 22-23. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused by this delay," he said in a Facebook post.

The Congress chief did not state any reason for the postponement of his visit to Amethi.

Gandhi and Union minister Smriti Irani were set to cross paths in Amethi on Friday.

While Rahul was to be in Amethi on January 4 and 5, Irani, a vocal critic of the Gandhi scion, was on a day-long visit to the Gandhi bastion on Friday.

Irani blamed the Congress for "creating hurdles" in the judicial process in the Ram temple case through its lawyers and said 'Ram bhakts' should ask the party about it.
