Chorus grows for Rahul to contest from South India

NEW DELHI, MAR 23 (IANS) | Publish Date: 3/23/2019 12:03:51 PM IST

As the clamour for Congress president Rahul Gandhi to fight from a seat in Southern India grows, Amethi district Congress and its various units on Saturday passed resolutions that he should accept the offer like his mother Sonia Gandhi and grandmother Indira did in the past. It seemed a trifle contrived and perhaps orchestrated in the face of Union minister Smriti Irani rising heft in Amethi.

“Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and former president Sonia Gandhi too contested from Southern India and represented the country. It will be a sign of respect for Congress workers in South India. A resolution has been passed that Rahul Gandhi should accept this offer. It’s a welcome move,” a resolution from the Amethi unit of the Congress Seva Dal read.

“People of Amethi are excited and have blessed him (Rahul) with their support. He will win from both the seats and become Prime Minister,” it added. The two seats referred to are Amethi and the one from southern India.
