Lok Sabha Election 2024 LIVE: Madhya Pradesh jabs Rahul for ‘repeated launches’

Union Minister Shah says Gandhi is changing constituencies for fear of losing elections

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday alleged that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was regularly switching constituencies ‘out of fear of losing the elections’. Shah’s comments at an election campaign rally in Gujarat’s Bodeli came a day after Gandhi filed his nomination from the party stronghold of Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Gandhi had contested from Amethi and Wayanad seats. While he won from Wayanad, he lost the Amethi seat to Union minister Smriti Irani.

“The Congress is fighting the elections under their leader Rahul Gandhi. He lost in Amethi and went to Wayanad. Now, fearing defeat in Wayanad, he also fights Rae Bareli but did not return to Amethi. Rahul Baba, the problem is not with the chair, it is with you. You will lose Rae Bareli by a huge margin, wherever you run, people are looking for you,” Shah said.

Shah also criticized the INDIA alliance’s “rotation formula” for the prime minister’s post, urging voters “not to hand over power to a divisive party”. Wondering who would become the Prime Minister if the opposition alliance wins, he stated, “The BJP has a clear face – if we win, Narendra Modi will be our Prime Minister. But if the INDIA alliance wins, who will be the Prime Minister? Sharad Pawar, Mamata Banerjee, Stalin, Uddhav Thackeray or Rahul Gandhi?”
