Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her MP son Rahul Gandhi will visit different parts of Maharashtra to seek votes for the alliance.

Sonia’s probable tour dates are October 5, 6 and 10.

She is expected to address poll rallies in Buldhana, Nanded, Kolhapur and Mumbai — areas that can give alliance a crucial lead.

Rahul will travel on October 7 and 8. The venues of his rallies were not disclosed.

Other than Sonia and Rahul, state leaders Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, Vilasrao Deshmukh, Sushilkumar Shinde and Narayan Rane will hold rallies and campaign for the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party alliance.

It was unclear whether either Sonia or Rahul would campaign for President Pratibha Patil’s son, Rajendra Shekhawat who is contesting from Amravati.
