Congress president Sonia Gandhi's trip to Meghalaya's West Garo Hills district town Tura for electioneering was cancelled due to bad weather.

Deputy Commissioner of the district, S Jagannathan confirmed that Sonia Gandhi cancelled her programme to Tura because of bad weather.

The party sources could not confirm whether Gandhi's programme would be rescheduled later or not.

The Congress president's visit was significant as the party was locked in a straight fight in Tura with Nationalist Trinamool Congress leader and former Lok Sabha speaker Purno A Sangma, who has been raking up her foreign origin issue.
