Congress president Sonia Gandhi arrived in Lucknow on Friday and headed to her constituency Rae Bareli.

She is going to evaluate the implementation of developmental schemes in the constituency, a party official said.

Gandhi is on a two-day tour of Rae Bareli, 80 km from Lucknow.

"While going to Rae Bareli, Soniaji will halt at several places and interact with people to know their problems," Akhilesh Pratap Singh, the state Congress spokesperson, told reporters in Lucknow.

She will also make surprise visits to villages in Rae Bareli to know the status of central government sponsored schemes and also take part in Panchayat meetings, a party official said.

On the second day of her tour, Gandhi will participate in party meetings and return to New Delhi by evening, the official added.
