Congress president Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination from Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi, with his mother Sonia Gandhi, sister Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law Robert Vadra by his side. Before filing the nomination, Rahul held a roadshow from Munshiganj-Darpipur to Gauriganj. Rahul is also scheduled to hold two rallies in Bihar and West Bengal. The three-term MP will take on Union Minister and BJP candidate Smriti Irani.
The road show was the Gandhi family’s show of strength with the Congress president flanked by his sister, brother-in-law and their two children in the open truck.
Surging crowds of Congress supporters walked along as the truck made its way to the Collectorate. Sonia Gandhi was not part of the roadshow but reached the Collectorate to back her son.
While speaking to reporters after filing nomination Rahul Gandhi challenged Prime Minister Modi for a debate
