Thiruvananthapuram: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today began his two-day visit to flood-affected areas of Kerala.
Rahul reached the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram in the morning and then paid a visit to relief camps at Chengannur and Christian College.
On the second day of his visit, the Congress chief is scheduled to visit Wayanad district.
Earlier on August 24, Rahul had expressed his solidarity with the people of Kerala and tweeted, "This is a difficult time for the people of Kerala. In relief camps and homes across the state, people are grieving for their loved ones. On this Onam let us pledge to put aside our differences, stand united together and focus on the task of #RebuildingKerala."
