After leaving office Sonia Gandhi is ready to retire from active politics. So, Sonia Gandhi’s daughter Priyanka Vadra can contest the Lok Sabha elections from Rae Bareli next year.
Apart from this, the party has formed a strategy to focus on 30 Lok Sabha seats. Of these, 22 seats have been placed by the party’s earlier dominant position. There are eight such seats where Congress has the base, but in the last Lok Sabha elections, the party was in the fourth and fifth position and the exercise has begun to change this aspect, in which preparations for Priyanka Gandhi to contest from RaeBareli begin. If all is done and it is all right then the Lok Sabha will be contested by making this centre.
The demand for bringing Priyanka to the next line in Congress is going on for a long time. Due to Sonia Gandhi’s poor health, Priyanka has been taking care of her mother’s parliamentary constituency for a long time. Apart from this, when she goes to Rahul Gandhi’s constituency, she also supervises the work of development work there. In this view, Priyanka’s RaeBareli candidature appears to be the strongest argument for the candidacy of this prestigious parliamentary seat.
In the Parliament session after Rahul Gandhi’s coronation, Sonia Gandhi also gave signs of shifting to active politics. Party spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi says that Priyanka Vadra is always active in Congress. Uttar Pradesh Senior Congress leader Akhilesh Singh fondly said that Sonia Gandhi’s farewell to active politics and Priyanka’s projection from Rae Bareli is in talks but they do not have any information about it yet.
NOTE ON – PRIYANKA RAEBARELI CANDIDATE PROJECTION
Congress will prepare the stage for Priyanka Gandhi by preparing for internal insiders and when Priyanka Gandhi completes her submission, her candidature for the next year’s elections will also be possible. But if Rahul fails, then the other option is Priyanka. There was also the hope of handing over the organization to her which is being kept alive in case of a debacle or urgency. All these Congress leaders will not speak, but everything will be done quietly.
