Rahul Gandhi will flag off the Congress' 'Chetna Yatra' from Ambedkar Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh on April 14 to mark 125 years of the party's foundation.
"Rahul Gandhi will flag off ten vehicles to form the part of party's chetna yatra at a function to be organised at Ambedkar Nagar district on April 14," Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi told reporters in Lucknow.
Joshi said that after the flag off, party's yatra will begin from 10 corners of the state.
"As a part of the yatra, we will make people aware with the history of the party and its programmes," she said.
The Congress leader said that the yatra will cover one assembly segment every day during which five public meetings will be held.
About the programme, the UPCC chief said it will be attended by a large number of people and party workers.
When asked about BSP's programme on the same day, Joshi said that it was a government rally. "I am happy that after three years, BSP has given a call to organise rallies on the birth anniversary of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar," she said.
Joshi claimed that her party had decided to organise Ambedkar Nagar programme much in advance.
