This Day in History: Gandhi Is Assassinated

This Day in History:, Gandhi Is Assassinated. January 30, 1948. The political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement was assassinated in New Delhi by a Hindu fanatic. Known as Mahatma, or “the great soul,” Gandhi’s methods of civil disobedience influenced leaders of civil rights movements around the world. He organized his first campaign of satyagraha, or mass civil disobedience, in 1906 while working as a lawyer in South Africa. Five years after returning to India, Gandhi launched a new satyagraha in 1919 in protest of Britain’s mandatory military draft of Indians. For the next two decades, he led fasts, marches, worked for India's poor and was often imprisoned. In 1942, Gandhi launched the “Quit India” movement, which called for a total British withdrawal from India. On August 15, 1947, Britain agreed to create the two new independent states of India and Pakistan. When he was killed, Gandhi was on a vigil to heal the religious strife between Hindus and Muslims in his country

Ahead of the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, Smriti Irani has dared Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to contest 2024 Lok Sabha Elections from the Amethi constituency. The election fever is running high with the Election Commission slated to announce the election date after March 13. For the BJP, Amethi is a symbol of its ability to dismantle the dynastic stronghold of the Congress. Smriti Irani's victory in 2019 was not just a win for the BJP but a statement that no seat, no matter how historically significant to the opposition, is beyond their reach. #SmritiIrani #Amethi #LokSabhaElections #KnowYourMP #AmethiMPSmritiIrani #CongressMPSmritiIrani #IndianPolitics #Congress #PoliticalCareer #Leadership #ElectionCampaign #AmethiConstituency #PoliticalJourney #ElectoralStrategy #CongressLeader #RahulInAmethi #PoliticalMilestones #IndianDemocracy #ElectionDecision #CongressParty #VoteForRahul #PoliticalLegacy #CampaignTrail ~HT.99~ED.103~PR.152~

Lok Sabha Elections: Rahul Gandhi to contest from Wayanad | Know his political career | Oneindia

The upcoming General Election to elect members of the 18th Lok Sabha in India is anticipated to occur in the forthcoming months of April and May. It's poised to witness a fierce battle between the ruling NDA alliance and the newly formed I.N.D.I.A. alliance. Despite the prevailing political scenario, the idea of a significant surge in support for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi might appear implausible to many observers. However, the 2019 Lok Sabha elections presented a different narrative. Despite Congress's diminished presence on the political landscape with only 52 seats (and the United Progressive Alliance securing 91), Rahul Gandhi's strategic decision to contest from Wayanad in the southern state of Kerala emerged as a pivotal factor. #RahulGandhi #Wayanad #LokSabhaElections #KnowYourMP #WayanadMPRahulGandhi #CongressMPRahulGandhi #IndianPolitics #Congress #PoliticalCareer #Leadership #ElectionCampaign #WayanadConstituency #PoliticalJourney #ElectoralStrategy #CongressLeader #RahulInWayanad #PoliticalMilestones #IndianDemocracy #ElectionDecision #CongressParty #VoteForRahul #PoliticalLegacy #CampaignTrail ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.155~
