Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 30 (IANS) Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s Friday visit to this Kerala city has been postponed due to bad weather, party sources said on Thursday.


Gandhi was scheduled to participate in a function to mark the conclusion of a statewide yatra undertaken by former state Minister and present Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala.

"Due to bad weather conditions and security considerations over his address at a public meeting at a beachside venue, his visit has been postponed," Chennithala’s office said.

Gandhi was earlier expected to arrive on Friday afternoon and depart on Saturday, but heavy rain accompanied by strong winds in the southern districts of Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam since Thursday morning washed out his proposed visit.

More rain has been predicted till the forenoon on Friday.
