Congress Set to Reveal Candidates for Amethi and Rae Bareli Amid Speculation

Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge will unveil the party’s candidates for the prominent Amethi and Rae Bareli seats on Thursday, ending speculation. The central election committee has empowered Kharge to finalize the picks, expected within 24-30 hours. Reports suggest Rahul Gandhi might contest from Rae Bareli, though Priyanka Gandhi’s interest clashes, citing criticism of dynasty politics. Rahul Gandhi, pledging to obey party orders, faces a May 20th election alongside Rae Bareli. Amid discussions, Uttar Pradesh’s state leadership advocates for Rahul in Amethi and Priyanka in Rae Bareli. Previously represented by Sonia Gandhi, both constituencies hold significance for the Gandhi-Nehru family, while the Congress, in alliance with the Samajwadi Party, contests 17 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
