The Congress party has unveiled its roster for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, revealing the candidates for two prominent constituencies – Rae Bareli and Amethi. In a strategic move, Rahul Gandhi is set to contest from Rae Bareli, while K.L. Sharma will vie for victory in Amethi.

Rahul Gandhi’s decision to contest from Rae Bareli marks a significant shift in the party’s electoral strategy, as he seeks to reclaim the stronghold previously held by his mother, Sonia Gandhi. Meanwhile, Amethi, a bastion long associated with the Gandhi family, will witness a fierce battle once again, with BJP stalwart Smriti Irani poised to challenge the Congress stronghold.

The electoral history of these constituencies adds an extra layer of intrigue to the upcoming showdown. While Rahul Gandhi has clinched victory in Rae Bareli thrice before, his defeat to Smriti Irani in Amethi during the 2019 elections remains a notable event. With both parties fielding formidable candidates, the electoral contest in these constituencies promises to be closely watched.

As the political landscape heats up ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, all eyes will be on Rae Bareli and Amethi, where political heavyweights will lock horns in a battle for supremacy.
