After visiting the facilitation centre at Wayanad collectorate, Gandhi will take part in various public functions organised by the party in the constituency. A row erupted over Rahul's citizenship during Lok Sabha elections when the MHA issued a notice to the Congress president based on BJP MP Subramanian Swamy's complaint. He claimed that even if the Congress and Left parties manage to put their ideological differences aside to work towards developing the southern state, no such expectation can be made from the BJP.

"The current government and Mr Narendra Modi spread hatred in the country and the Congress party knows and understands that the only way to combat hatred is through love and affection", he said.

Earlier this week, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath sought time from the Congress president to meet him along with his son Nakul Nath, the only Lok Sabha MP from his state. They believe that if you do not follow the ideology of the RSS, you are not Indian.

"On the national level, we are fighting poison".

The Congress is in disarray now, with Rahul Gandhi threatening to submit his resignation and asking the Working Committee led by the party veteran Ahmed Patel and another member Venugopal to select a suitable replacement.

Before leaving for New Delhi in the afternoon, Gandhi would take out one more roadshow at Mukkam. He lost the Amethi poll battle to Union minister Smriti Irani.

Gandhi landed at Kozhikode airport around 2 pm on Friday before arriving in Wayanad parliamentary constituency to a massive public reception, kick starting his three-day visit to the state.

"Modi won the election by telling lies and spreading hatred".

Rahul Gandhi, despite his busy schedule on a thanksgiving visit to his constituency Wayanad, spent some time with the nurse's family.

Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala, who was accompanying Rahul Gandhi in Wayanad took to Facebook writing, "The hands that received little Rahul five decades back embraced him again today". But the offer was rejected by the Congress Working Committee, the highest decision-making body of the party.
