Hinting that a member of the Gandhi family will contest the Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, state Congress president Ajay Roy on Saturday said, “The seat will remain with the Gandhi family.” While interacting with the media, Rai said, “The people of Rae Bareilly have been closely related to the Gandhi family for generations. This seat belongs to the Gandhi family and will remain with the Gandhi family.

Will Priyanka Gandhi contest from Rae Bareli?

Asked who from the Gandhi family would contest there, Rai said, “It will definitely be decided by them (the Gandhi family).” MP from the seat, informed the people of her parliamentary constituency on Thursday that she will not contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections due to health reasons. In her letter to the people of Rae Bareli, 77-year-old leader Sonia Gandhi wrote, “After this decision, I will not have the opportunity to serve you directly, but my heart and soul will always be with you. I know you will support me and my family in the future as before.

Speculations are rife that after Sonia Gandhi vacates the Rae Bareli seat, her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra may contest the elections from Rae Bareli.

‘Rahul not allowed to take camera to temple’

Meanwhile, while interacting with the media, Ajay Rai alleged that he was not allowed to carry a camera when Rahul Gandhi visited the Kashi Vishwanath temple. He said, “When all BJP leaders visit the Kashi Vishwanath temple, they are allowed to come with a camera. But Rahul Gandhi was not allowed to go to the temple with a camera and the administration said No photos have been released yet. On the second day of Congress’ ‘Bharat Jodo Naya Yatra’ in Uttar Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi visited the Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi. (Language)
