After launching the campaign in Karnataka, Congress President Sonia Gandhi will be visiting Orissa on Wednesday where the party is making a bid to put up an impressive show in the BJD-ruled state.Congress sources said that Gandhi will be addressing as many as three meetings in the eastern state where the ruling party has recently come out of the BJP-led NDA and has become a part of the Third Front.

Gandhi's visit has come at a time when the Congress in the state appears to be a divided house with number of senior leaders quitting the party dissatisfied over ticket distribution.While there is no official word, the Congress President is expected to go to Amethi on April 4 when Rahul Gandhi is filing his nomination.

She will be filing her nomination from Rae Bareli on April 6.
