Rahul Gandhi to contest lok sabha polls from Wayanad and Amethi!
These upcoming Lok Sabha elections are very important for Rahul Gandhi as these are the first ever Parliamentary elections after he has become the president for the Indian National Congress. So he is not intended to take any chances and opted to contest from another constituency along with Amethi in U.P.
Senior Congress leader AK Antony on Sunday announced that Congress President Rahul Gandhi will contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Wayanad in Kerala, as his second seat. "Rahul ji has given his consent to contest from two seats," said Antony.
Besides Wayanad, he will also be contesting elections from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh. AK Antony from Congress announced that Rahul ji has given his consent to contest from two seats and told that very happy to inform you that he will also contest from Wayanad in Kerala.
It’s a dare decision to say as contesting in Kerala where their party has no strong base. But the good thing is, all the Kerala people are against the ruling, BJP government who lacked the compensatory benefits at the time of floods.
