Lok Sabha Election: There is talk from Rae Bareli to Amethi that Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi can announce to contest the elections on 26th April. If this happens then how will the elections be? BJP has given ticket to Union Minister Smriti Irani from Amethi, whereas BJP candidate in Rae Bareli is also not finalized yet. Till now, Sonia Gandhi, who was contesting and winning elections from Rae Bareli, has reached Rajya Sabha. In such a situation, who will contest elections from this seat after him? Priyanka Gandhi or any other leader of the party from the family.

In response to this, UP Congress in-charge Avinash Pandey recently said that politics is also strategy. So isn't this story of April 26 also a part of the strategy? In fact, Rae Bareli remained the stronghold of Congress and Gandhi-Nehru family for decades. There is silence in the Congress office in Amethi. The banner of 'All is deserted without Rahul' has just been put up. Looking at the Congress office, it does not seem that elections are taking place after a month.

Both brother and sister on the driving seat

Let us tell you that for the first time Rahul Gandhi came to Amethi to contest elections. Then Priyanka Gandhi was leading and Rahul was behind. This is from 2004. Then when Rahul came to Amethi after winning in 2014, Rahul was leading and Priyanka was lagging behind. It was said that now Rahul is in the driving seat. As of today, both the brothers and sisters are in the driving seat. Now is it a coincidence or an experiment that there is suspense over both of them contesting the elections.

After losing the election, Rahul gave up the attraction of Amethi!

In fact, only two months ago Rahul Gandhi had come to Amethi with Nyay Yatra. But the atmosphere was not anything special. The people of Amethi kept waiting for Rahul to say two heart-touching words for them even though he was the MP from here for fifteen years. In fact, after losing the last Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi has given up the attraction of Amethi. He came here only three times in the last five years. He has left Amethi in the hands of local leaders.

Timing-messages turn the tables in politics

On the other hand, Union Home Minister and BJP's Chanakya Amit Shah has given a task to his loved ones. To include opposition people in BJP. Every day some Congress leaders of Amethi are joining BJP. Everyone is assuming that the story of Congress in Amethi has come to an end. Rahul Gandhi is on the other end of this political story. Who neither have any house of their own in Amethi nor are they voters here. In politics, timing and message change the whole game. In this matter, Smriti Irani is outweighing him in every aspect. Even after losing the elections in 2014, he always considered Amethi as his home and the voters here as his family. Now he has made this weakness of Rahul his emotional bet.

One wrong decision can sink the party

There are five assembly seats in Amethi Lok Sabha. Samajwadi Party won two seats and BJP captured the remaining three. In the recently held Rajya Sabha elections, both the MLAs of Samajwadi Party helped BJP. Samajwadi Party has been supporting Congress in the Lok Sabha elections for the last several elections. Akhilesh Yadav told Congress that if neither Rahul nor Priyanka contests the elections, then a very wrong message will be sent. Congress is going through its worst phase in UP. One wrong decision can sink the party. Now this has to be decided by Rahul and Priyanka. Their path is to save Congress or to leave the fate of the party to their own devices.
