Several factors responsible behind Rahul’s nomination from Raibareily


Rahul Gandhi’s nomination and filing of papers from Raibareily has brought happiness on the faces of congress leaders for several reasons.

Some politicians opine when PM Modi can contest from Varanasi why not Rahul from Raibareily.

But others feel Rahul’s decision to contest from Raibareily is to revive the Nehru Gandhi family tradition of making their presence felt from this district in UP.

The seat had been won by Indira Gandhi, her son late PM Rajiv Gandhi and then by Sonia Gandhi.

It is this important factor that underlines the the cause of re entry of Rahul Gandhi from this place instead of nearby Amethi seat that Rahul lost to BJPs Smriti Irani last time.

Congress has fielded KL Sharma from Amethi to fight against Smriti Irani thereby sending message down the ladder that party thinks about workers also. Rahul’s coming back to contest from this region is also in reply to BJP mocking Rahul of having run away following defeat at the hands of BJP last time.

Amethi: Congress candidate from Amethi constituency Kishori Lal Sharma files his nomination, for Lok Sabha elections, in Amethi district.

And then of course UP had been the stronghold of most party stalwarts including JLNehru, the first PM, late Indira Gandhi, and Rajiv Gandhi all from the same family.

Others include Lal Bahadur Shashtri, Chandrashekhar Singh, and VP Singh.

Rahul Gandhi is going to revive old memories by winning the seat this time, says senior Samajwadi Party leader Tariq Saeed alias Ajju.

Congress is reviving fast and that is why BJP has stopped making fun of Rahul on social platforms.

Lambasting the BJP he said, gold sold for 24,000 per ten grams in 2014.

Ten years later now it’s 83,000.Look at the prices of other things that are soaring under BJP rule.
