Rahul Gandhi Confirmed to Contest Lok Sabha Elections from Amethi, Says Congress Leader

Amethi: In a significant political development, Uttar Pradesh Congress leader Pradeep Singhal announced that Rahul Gandhi will be contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Amethi, a constituency he has represented multiple times since 2002. Singhal, the Congress District President, confirmed the decision following his return from a meeting in Delhi and mentioned that an official announcement of Gandhi’s candidacy is imminent.

Congress Bastion – Amethi:


Amethi holds historical significance as a Congress stronghold in Uttar Pradesh since its formation in 1967. The Gandhi family’s political legacy in Amethi began with Sanjay Gandhi’s initial attempt in 1977, followed by Rajiv Gandhi’s successful tenure until his tragic assassination in 1991. Subsequently, Sonia Gandhi contested and won from Amethi in 1999, but later shifted her constituency to Raebareli in 2004. Rahul Gandhi assumed the political mantle in Amethi in 2004, representing the constituency until 2019 when he faced defeat to BJP’s Smriti Irani.

Rahul Gandhi vs Smriti Irani:

The potential electoral face-off between Rahul Gandhi and Union Minister Smriti Irani in Amethi adds intrigue to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In 2019, Irani secured victory in Amethi by defeating Gandhi by a margin of 55,120 votes. Despite this setback, Rahul Gandhi entered the Lok Sabha as he won the Wayanad constituency. Amethi, historically a Congress bastion, is poised for another compelling contest as both leaders prepare to go head-to-head once again in the imminent general elections scheduled for April-May this year.
