Spirit-sapping Congress loss puts question mark over Lok Sabha chances

IndiaTimes Sunday, 3 December 2023
The Congress party's belief in a revival after the post-2014 stasis has been shattered by its recent defeats in the Hindi heartland. The party's struggles in this region, concerns about polarisation, and absence of a counter agenda to the BJP have resurfaced. The defeats have raised fears about the party's future, especially with the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and the Ayodhya issue. Rahul Gandhi faces a personal challenge as he tries to retain momentum and find a new rallying call.

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~
