, 10:13 AM IST

Thiruvananthapuram: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is due to begin his two-day visit to Kerala from Tuesday where he will meet party leaders to discuss strategies for the upcoming Assembly polls in the state.

The Congress vice-president is scheduled to address party workers at the conclusion of the `Janaraksha march` taken out by KPCC President VM Sudheeran and later attend a meeting of senior party leaders in the city.

Gandhi`s presence is likely to up the morale of the party workers in the backdrop of the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) government facing embarrassment in the bar bribery and solar scams, with allegations being raised against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

On Wednesday morning, the Congress vice-president will be addressing a KPCC Executive Meeting here and will also be meeting DCC Presidents and leaders of various allied organisations of the party in the state.
