Suspense on Congress face for Rae Bareli, Amethi continues


Lucknow: Congress announced another list of its candidates for the Lok Sabha elections. The party has given tickets to four candidates from UP in this list. The most important seat has been given to Maharajganj MLA Virendra Chaudhary. Even in this list, there is no disclosure about Rae Bareli and Amethi. There has been speculation for a long time as to who will contest from these traditional seats of the Gandhi family.

Congress released its eighth list for the Lok Sabha elections on Wednesday night. The party has announced the names of 14 candidates, including four from UP. Congress has given tickets to Dolly Sharma from Ghaziabad, Nakul Dubey from Sitapur, Virendra Chaudhary from Maharajganj and Shivram Valmiki from Bulandshahr.

By not giving ticket to Amanmani Tripathi, MLA from Nautanwa seat of Maharajganj, he has played a gamble on his old worker. Earlier, on Saturday (23 March), Congress had announced the names of nine candidates from UP, in which the party had fielded Ajay Rai from Varanasi against PM Modi. Apart from this, Pradeep Jain has been given ticket from Jhansi. Let it be known that Congress has got 17 seats in the state under the India Alliance.
