Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday  met party cadres and office bearers of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee during a day-long visit to the city.


After landing at the airport in Amritsar, he was straightway driven to the venue of his first meeting on Airport Road itself.

He was received by Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh and other senior party leaders from the state on his arrival at the airport.

During the first session, he is scheduled to address the office bearers of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, the PCC members, the members of the executive body, the district Congress committee presidents, the block presidents and present and former MPs and MLAs.

The Congress leader will also interact with the heads of the four frontal organisations of the party, including the Punjab Mahila Congress, the National Students' Union of India (NSUI) and the Punjab Youth Congress.

Later, he will address a convention being organised by the Punjab Youth Congress on the Attari border.

Tomorrow, he will address a students' rally being organised by the Punjab unit of the National Students' Union of India in the Panjab University at Chandigarh.

Unplanned divider ruins charm of McLeod Road

Morning walkers in the holy city have lost what was, perhaps, their last remaining favourite road.
