Congress Fielded Rahul Gandhi From Rae Bareli

Rahul Gandhi: The top leader of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi, who is campaigning to become the Prime Minister if the India alliance comes to power, has given a twist in the Lok Sabha elections. He is already contesting from Wayanad in Kerala. Recently it was decided to contest from Rae Bareli. The Congress leadership has announced Rahul as its candidate. With this, he will make his nomination on Friday (May 3). Kishorilal Sharma will contest from Amethi. Priyanka Gandhi is away from the elections.

Congress stronghold..

Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat is a stronghold of Congress party. In the first election held in 1952, Feroz Gandhi (Rajiv Gandhi's father) won as an MP from here in the election held in 1957. After a gap of almost a decade, he and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi also won two consecutive terms. In 1977, Rajnayan, who contested on behalf of the Janata Party, won. Indira Gandhi won again in 1980. After that, Arun Nehru and Sheila Kaul won two terms each on behalf of Congress. In 1996-98, BJP's Ashok Singh broke Congress's record by winning as MP. After that, the Congress candidate Satish Sharma won the election in 1999. Since 2004, Sonia Gandhi has been successful from here for five terms.

Hydra in the case of two positions..

The victory of the candidates contesting from Rae Bareli and Amethi Lok Sabha seats led to a big hydra in the Congress. Rahul Gandhi is already contesting from Wayanad in Kerala. Suspense continued as to what he would choose and contest in the Amethi and Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seats. Rahul Gandhi contested from Amethi in 2004 and won. He won three times till 2014. But in 2019 election he lost to BJP leader Smriti Irani. But he won from Wayanad in the same election. With this, the Congress party breathed a sigh of relief. It is thought that he will contest from Amethi this time too. But in view of the situation at the field level, the nomination was made from Wayanad. As the BJP campaigned that Rahul was afraid of contesting, after many discussions, he prepared to contest from his mother Sonia Gandhi's seat, Rae Bareli.

Discussions with Anna's sisters..

AICC president Mallikarjunkharge held several discussions with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi about the contest in Amethi and Rae Bareli elections. It was thought that two people should be brought into the ring from two positions. Finally, Rahul agreed to contest from Rae Bareli. But Priyanka Gandhi showed no interest in contesting from Amethi. So they decided to stay away from contesting in the elections.
