Smriti Vs Rahul: The Big Battle Of 2019

Apr 04, 2019 09:21 PM IST India India

Rahul Gandhi set off on a road show this morning in his new 2nd constituency Wayanad in Kerala with enthused Congress workers, locals and curious onlookers packing the 2km stretch.This after the Congress President filed his nomination papers at the district collector's office. Gandhi stressed once again that his only reason for fight from Wayanad was to bridge the North-South divide adding that the Modi government has alienated the South.But his political opponent in the Gandhi bastion, Smriti Irani rubbished the explanation, insisting that the fear of losing Amethi drove him down south. The BJP candidate from Amethi launched her campaign in prestigious UP seat today, terming Rahul Gandhi the missing MP of Amethi. As the BJP eyes this opportunity to weaken the Gandhi grip over Amethi, will Rahul's 2-seat strategy help Smriti Irani or will Rahul Gandhi's Wayanad gamble pay off by letting the Congress to grab a sizeable number seats in South India.
