Indore: Continuing his campaign of reaching out to less privileged sections, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will be visiting Mhow on Tuesday, the birthplace of Dr BR Ambedkar around whose work and ideology struggles of the suppressed classes are centred.

The visit is a prelude to the Congress' plans to celebrate the 125th birth anniversary of the Dalit icon next year in a grand way and come closer to the community, which was once its vote bank.

According to the All India Congress Committee, Rahul is expected to reach Indore at 12 noon and garland the statue of the architect of the Indian Constitution at Mhow, around 25 km from Indore, around 1 pm.

He will address a public meeting in the afternoon and interact with Dalit leaders and activists in the evening before returning to Delhi, an AICC statement said. Madhya Pradesh Congress president Arun Yadav told reporters in Indore that Rahul will pay floral tributes at the Ambedkar memorial and then address a public meeting.

He will speak on Ambedkar's thought at a seminar and interact with intellectuals and activists of Dalit and tribal community.

Yadav said Rahul's visit is the opening event of a series of meetings and interactions planned by the Congress during Dr Ambedkar's 125th anniversary.

Apart from mounting a high voltage campaign on farm sector crisis in different parts of the country and targetting the Narendra Modi government over the land bill, Rahul also taken up fishermen's problems by visiting a coastal village in Kerala recently.
