Rahul Gandhi Vs Smriti Irani Again, Amethi Lok Sabha Seat 2019, Union minister Smriti Irani will once again take on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi from Amethi for the second time. In the 2014 polls, Rahul Gandhi had defeated Irani in Amethi seat by a margin of 1.07 lakh votes.
It will be round two of the electoral battle between the Rahul Gandhi and Smriti Irani in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi as BJP announced on Thursday evening that it has fielded the union minister to take on the Congress chief from the Gandhi bastion again.
Smriti Irani further added that Rahul Gandhi seeking support from Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav is a proof that this time he cannot contest from Amethi on his own, which is not a good sign for Congress. Irani had lost to Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls but was seen to have put up a spirited fight.
Irani had unsuccessfully contested against Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha election and had lost by around 1 lakh votes, but was seen to have put up a spirited fight. The Congress has earlier announced the candidature of Gandhi from Amethi.
