Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday tweeted that he will be "travelling to meet my grandmother and family for a few days".

The decision to travel assumes significance as Rahul has taken on the Modi government aggressively on its third anniversary. He also met the families of farmers killed in police firing in Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh.

Sources in the party said they were not sure how long would be Rahul's sojourn, but indicated he would celebrate his birthday abroad with his maternal family.

The scion of the Gandhi family turns 47 on June 19.

The Congress vice president's travel comes in the wake of crucial meetings taking place on the presidential election, the process for which will start from Wednesday with the issue of notification and start of filing of nominations.

The all-important sub-group of the Opposition leaders would be meeting tomorrow to evolve strategy for the July 17 presidential election.

The Congress party is also planning to "expose" the Modi government for "failing" to fulfil the promises made to farmers by organising an agitational plan jointly with other parties.

He last travelled to get his mother Sonia Gandhi back from an undisclosed location, after she had travelled abroad for medical treatment for an unannounced ailment.
