New Delhi: Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi for writing an open letter to his "Amethi family", BJP candidate for the Uttar Pradesh seat Smriti Irani said that the Congress chief's gesture shows that he is losing the party citadel.
The Congress president in his letter had urged the people to vote him back as the MP in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha polls on May 6.
Gandhi had added in his letter that his Amethi family gave him the courage to stand with the truth and ensure equal justice for all.
On Saturday, BJP president Amit Shah held a roadshow in Amethi during which Irani made the comments. Shah asserted that the BJP would win the Amethi Lok Sabha seat by one lakh votes. "Our overall seats in Uttar Pradesh will also increase," Shah said.
The constituency, a pocket borough of the Gandhi family, has always supported the Congress president. The contest this time, however, has intensified with his opponent — BJP’s Smriti Irani — accusing him of choosing another constituency as he is afraid of a loss in Amethi. Gandhi is also contesting from Kerala’s Wayanad, which has given the BJP ammunition ahead of polling in Amethi.
