Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s daughter and Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s sister, has officially entered into politics. He has been made the general secretary of the Congress and has been given the responsibility of Eastern Uttar Pradesh for the Lok Sabha elections. A question with Priyanka’s entry in politics is the most asked question, what is the Lok Sabha election? If you fight, what seat will it be in the electoral field?
Priyanka has got the responsibility of the Purvanchal, she is being speculated that she can launch an election career from this region. So that the enthusiasm can be filled in the workers and the voters in the entire area can also be affected.
Political analysts have started to assess Priyanka Gandhi’s electoral constituency. There are frequent names of many such seats where Congress general secretary can start his political career.
1. Rae Bareli
The name of Rae Bareli is the first in the potential seats. UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi is MP from here, but her health has been poor for a long time. It is a matter of growing age and poor health that Sonia Gandhi goes down considerably in her field. Priyanka has also been campaigning for her mother in Rae Bareli earlier too. Not only this, from local leaders, workers know the name by that name.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi is an MP from the Amethi Lok Sabha seat, considered to be the Gandhi family’s stronghold. In the 2014 election, he had given a direct fight to Union Minister Smriti Irani from this seat, this time also he can try his luck from here. There are also speculations that Priyanka Gandhi can contest from here so that the fight will turn into Priyanka versus memory. If that happens then Rahul Gandhi can contest from Rae Bareli too.
Varanasi Lok Sabha seat, considered the center of Purvanchal, is one of the most VIP seats in the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is an MP from here. There is speculation that the Congress can pick up its biggest trumpet, Aik Priyanka Gandhi from here on the electoral fray.A tweet of former union minister Kapil Sibal also indicates this. Significantly, if Congress withdraws Priyanka from here, then a big message will be sent across the country.
Another important seat of Purvanchal, Phulpur is also included in the place where Priyanka Gandhi is likely to contest the elections. This seat is considered as the traditional seat of Congress, the first Prime Minister of the country, Jawaharlal Nehru, was elected three times from here. Apart from this, his sister Vijay Lakshmi Pandit also won the elections twice. In such a situation, workers demand that Priyanka Gandhi contest Lok Sabha elections from here. In the 2014 elections, this seat had gone to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s account, but in the subsequent by-election, BJP had to face defeat.
Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat is the Bharatiya Janata Party’s stronghold and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been a Member of Parliament from here. However, in the bye-by-elections, BJP had to face defeat here. If Priyanka Gandhi fights this election, she will directly contest the BJP in Uttar Pradesh in her own stronghold. Congress President Rahul Gandhi had also made it clear on Wednesday that he did not send Priyanka for only 2 months. His aim is to make the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
