Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra
In the politics of UP, two questions are being discussed a lot in the opposition camp. From party offices to squares and intersections, the first question is whether Samajwadi Party and Congress will contest the Lok Sabha elections together? Can there be an alliance between these two parties? Actually, both Samajwadi Party and Congress are allies of India Alliance. But these days there is a tremendous tussle between the two parties. Both are threatening to see each other. Congress did not leave the seat for Samajwadi Party in MP. So now Akhilesh Yadav is also challenging to take revenge of MP in UP.
Can Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi contest elections from UP this time? Not only Congressmen, BJP people also want to know the answer to this question. Sonia Gandhi’s health is no longer the same as before. He has indicated not to contest elections from Rae Bareli.
Rahul Gandhi had lost the election from Amethi last time. Now he is an MP from Wayanad, Kerala. Brother-sister duo Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi have not come to UP for a long time. Priyanka Gandhi had resigned from the post of UP in-charge only after the defeat in the assembly elections last year.
Priyanka did not refuse to contest elections
When Priyanka Gandhi was asked whether she would contest elections from Rae Bareli, she did not refuse. She could have said that Sonia ji fights from there. Some party leaders have started pointing out that Priyanka will contest elections from Rae Bareli and Rahul from Amethi.
UP State President of Congress Ajay Rai also wants the same. The decision has to be taken by the Nehru-Gandhi family. But party leaders believe that Congress can benefit from Rahul Gandhi contesting elections from Amethi.
Congress gave gifts to thousands on Diwali
This time on Diwali, thousands of people of Amethi were given gifts by Congress. Some people got packets of lamps, some got clothes and many people got sweets. But every gift packet had a photo of Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi. This has happened for the first time.
However, Congress leader Deepak Singh says that sweets are sent to people every Diwali. Before the Lok Sabha elections, there is a lot of discussion in Amethi about the gift packet containing the photos of Rahul and Priyanka. Similar gifts have also been sent by Amethi’s BJP MP Smriti Irani.
The contest between Rahul Gandhi and Smriti Irani has taken place twice in Amethi. Once Rahul won and once Smriti Irani. Priyanka Gandhi’s role till now has been only to seek votes for her mother Sonia and brother Rahul Gandhi. Congressmen from Rae Bareli have appealed to Priyanka Gandhi to go to Delhi and contest the elections.
