New Delhi: Congress leader and Raebareli MP Rahul Gandhi will visit riot-hit Manipur on July 8, his third visit to the state since ethnic clashes broke out between the Meitei and Kuki communities in May of last year, media reports said.

Manipur Congress chief K Meghachandra announced during a press conference in Imphal that Rahul Gandhi will travel from Delhi to Silchar by flight, and then proceed to Jiribam district, where fresh violence occurred on June 6.

"Gandhi will visit some relief camps in the district. He will then return to Silchar airport and from there take a flight to Imphal," Meghachandra said, reported India Today.

"After landing in Imphal, he will head to Churachandpur district where he will interact with people living in relief camps," he said.

From Churachandpur, the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha is scheduled to travel by road to Moirang in Bishnupur district to visit some relief camps. He will then return to Delhi.
