Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Saturday filed his nomination papers for Amethi parliamentary constituency here in presence of party president Sonia Gandhi.

Rahul, who arrived here last evening, came in a cavalcade and was mobbed by enthusiastic party workers on the way to the district court where the nomination papers were filed.

Raising slogans hailing both Rahul and Sonia Gandhi, party workers showered them with rose petals and waved
congress flags. They were also carrying placards with pictures of Rahul Gandhi.

Both Sonia and Rahul later boarded an open jeep and greeted people on the way to the district court.

Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi, CLP leader Pramod Tiwari, Capt. Satish Sharma and Sultanpur Congress candidate Sanjay Singh were also present during the filing of the nomination papers.
