Sonia for RS? Priyanka may contest from Rae Bareli

INDIA bloc ally SP is willing to give both Amethi and Raibareli seats to Congress. With the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) switched over to join the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the Akhilesh Yadav-led party may give 16- 17 seats to Congress in Uttar Pradesh, said sources.Though Amethi Lok Sabha constituency was a Gandhi family pocket-borough, in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Rahul lost the seat to Smriti Irani by around 55,000 votes. However, he won from his second constituency Wayanad in Kerala. Since 2004 Gandhi had been contesting polls from Amethi.Earlier, Congress UP chief Ajay Rai said that the people of Amethi want to correct their ‘mistake’ of 2019 and Congress workers as well as leaders are demanding that Rahul Gandhi contest from the constituency in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
