UP Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Will voters of Rae Bareli give same love to Indira Gandhi's grandson?

Congress has announced the name of Rahul Gandhi from Rae Bareli seat and KL Sharma from Amethi. Voting will take place in Rae Bareli and Amethi on May 20.

Had Congress not given ticket to a member of Gandhi family from Rae Bareli, the fight would have ended even before the voting. In such a situation, the UP Congress Committee had asked the party high command to field a member of the Gandhi family from here. After a lengthy brainstorming, Congress has fielded Rahul from Rae Bareli. Whereas KL Sharma, close to the Gandhi family, will contest from Amethi, a traditional seat of the Gandhi family. In Amethi, BJP's Smriti Irani will face KL Sharma. So the election fight in Rae Bareli will be Dinesh Pratap Singh versus Rahul Gandhi.

Priyanka's tweet - Our family has very old relationship with Kishori Lal

After the list of candidates was released on Friday, May 3, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made a tweet. She wrote on social media that our family has a very old relationship with Kishori Lal ji. He always remained engaged with his heart and soul in serving the people of Amethi and Rae Bareli. Kishori Lal ji's passion for public service is an example in itself. It is a matter of happiness that Congress has made Kishori Lal ji its candidate from Amethi in UP. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wrote that Kishori Lal ji's loyalty and dedication to duty will definitely bring him success in this election.

Rae Bareli seat is not a legacy, it is a responsibility, it is a duty: Ramesh

On Rahul Gandhi contesting from Rae Bareli instead of Amethi, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said, "Rae Bareli has been the seat not only of Sonia ji, but of Indira Gandhi ji herself. This is not a legacy, it is a responsibility, it is a duty.”

Jairam Ramesh wrote on X, "Rahul Gandhi is an experienced player of politics and makes his moves thoughtfully."

“With this decision, BJP, its supporters and sycophants have collapsed. Poor self-proclaimed Chanakya, who used to talk about traditional seats, do not understand what to do now?"

‘Entire country is Gandhi family's stronghold’

Jairam Ramesh said, "As far as the Gandhi family's stronghold is concerned, not only Amethi-Rae Bareli, the entire country from north to south is the Gandhi family's stronghold. Rahul Gandhi became MP thrice from Uttar Pradesh and once from Kerala, but why couldn't Modiji muster the courage to go down and contest elections from Vindhyachal?

On Priyanka Gandhi not contesting the elections, Jairam Ramesh said, "Priyanka ji is campaigning vigorously and she alone is silencing Narendra Modi by answering every lie with the truth." That is why it was important that she should not have been limited to just one constituency. Priyanka ji will reach the House by contesting any by-election.

"Today, Smriti Irani's only identity is that she contests elections from Amethi against Rahul Gandhi. Now that fame has also been snatched away from Smriti Irani.

BJP leaders have claimed that Rahul Gandhi is not contesting elections from Amethi due to fear of defeat.

For the first time since 1999, no member of the Gandhi family is contesting from the Amethi Lok Sabha seat.

Congress party has made Kishori Lal Sharma its candidate from Amethi. In 2019, Smriti Irani defeated Rahul Gandhi from Amethi.
