Ajay Rai, the president of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Party unit, confirmed that Rahul Gandhi will contest from Amity. However, Rahul Gandhi has not been consistent with Amity in the last five years, and the Congress party is currently campaigning in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, and southern India. This division between Priyanka Gandhi Wadra and Rahul Gandhi is not expected to work for the Congress, as they have not been consistent in returning to Amity in the last five years. The Congress’s current functioning does not seem to want to put Rahul Gandhi into a battle with Smriti Irani, which would confine him at one level to amity and make him a prestige battle. Ideally, Rahul Gandhi would want to travel across the country and campaign, but defeating Iran, which has invested a lot of political capital in Amity, would be difficult.
The Congress party has not found a solution to revive itself in the last few years, and it is unlikely to find one. Rahul Gandhi, a former MLA and chief of the Uttar Pradesh Congress unit, is making statements that could lead to chaos. Congress traditionally allows more voices, but its weakness has been seen with Ajay Rai’s statement that Rahul Gandhi will contest in Amethi. Congress leaders in Delhi appear to know about this, possibly through direct communication with the Gandhi family. There is also a lot of alliance talk between the 26 Indian constituents, including the Samajwadi Party. Rahul Gandhi may contest for one yard or move to Tamil Nadu, while Priyanka Gandhi may contest from North India. Eight spokespersons from different political parties will be working on the India Alliance talks, but they will not have authorized voices and will not be called in.
The Congress and Indian constituents are trying to put pieces on the chessboard in the upcoming elections. Rahul Gandhi has publicly hinted that he will contest from Amity, but the Congress is now in a bind as they must either commit or say no. The Congress has won a seat 13 times, with the BJP winning nine times. The Congress party has won a seat 13 times, with Gandhi family members winning it nine times. If Rahul does not contest Amity, it would be like a general saying he is not going to battle Sardar or Cargill. The Congress party has a strong opponent in Battleground, where Amity is the focus of the battle. The Congress party currently holds only one seat in the Library League, which could be an unnerving element for them. If Sonia Gandhi is not likely to contest the Lok Sabha elections due to health reasons, a suitable candidate for rivalry is needed. Ajay Rai is not shooting his mouth off.
