Congress President Sonia Gandhi will be visiting Maharashtra's Nanded district on October seven to participate in the tercentenary celebrations of Guru Granth Sahib.

The Hazur Sahib Gurudwara of Nanded is one of the five takhts of the Sikhs. This gurudwara has a historical significance after the tenth Guru of Sikh religion Shri Guru Gobind Singh.

This will be Gandhi's first visit to the state after the change of guard in Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) last month.

The state unit is planning a huge welcome for the UPA chief in Nanded. MPCC president Manikrao Thakre has urged Gandhi to address a public meeting there.

He had also called for a meeting of officebearers yesterday to discuss preparations for the public meeting if Gandhi gives her nod for it.

Gandhi had addressed a public rally in Osmanabad after UPA's Rs 60,000-crore loan waiver bonanza for farmers earlier this year.
