In view of the Assembly elections due by May, the former Congress president will participate in the event at Belagavi in northern Karnataka, a party release said on Sunday.

As per his itinerary, Gandhi will arrive at Belagavi airport around 11 am and he will fly back to Delhi after the programme.

The Wayanad MP will also hold a meeting with Congress leaders during the 'Yuvakranti Samavesha' in Belagavi, which is scheduled on Monday afternoon.
