Rahul might lose in Amethi: CSDS

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 • Telugu Comments

CSDS, the polling agency, has suggested that Rahul Gandhi might lose in Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.  Smriti Irani of the BJP is likely to emerge as the winner.  

Speaking to a TV channel, Sanjay Kumar of CSDS said, "In 2017 Assembly elections, BJP won 4 out of 5 Assembly constituencies in Amethi.  In 2014, Irani gave a tough fight to the Congress President, who could win by a margin of 1.06 lakh votes instead of the 3 lakh majority he had got in 2009."

Irani has run a fervent campaign in Amethi to defeat Rahul since 2014.  By defeating the Gandhi in the pocket borough of the Congress party, she wants to go down as a lioness in the saffron party!  

Rahul now has to fall back on Wayanad in Kerala if were to indeed be snubbed by Amethi.
