Rahul Gandhi retains Raebareli, Priyanka Gandhi to contest Wayanad bypoll

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi will keep the Raebareli Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh and vacate the Wayanad seat in Kerala, from where his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will contest, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said on Monday.

Kharge was briefing the media after the Congress’ top leadership held discussions on the issue at his Delhi residence.

“Rahul Gandhi won from two Lok Saba seats but as per the law, he has to vacate one. Rahul Gandhi will retain Raebareli and we have decided that Priyanka ji will fight from Wayanad,” the Congress president said.
