Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar will visit the Mahabodhi temple at Bodh Gaya today which was rocked by multiple explosions on Sunday.


Police officials said Sushil Kumar will obtain first-hand information about the bomb explosions.


This will be the first visit by any union minister to the spot after the serial blasts.


Sonia Gandhi and Sushil Kumar’s visit comes a day after Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh, along with senior party leaders Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad, visited the Mahabodhi temple.
