'Sonia won't make me PM, said Pranab Mukherjee'

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 6 December 2023
Late former President Pranab Mukherjee, once a close confidant of Indira Gandhi, believed that Narendra Modi is the only Prime Minister after Indira who can feel the pulse of the people accurately. In her upcoming book, Pranab's daughter Sharmishtha narrates their conversations, including his desire to be the PM, his view of Rahul Gandhi, and Sonia Gandhi's decision to make Manmohan Singh the PM. Pranab also expressed doubts about Rahul's political maturity and advised him to gain experience.

Lok Sabha Elections: Smriti Irani’s political career | From TV to Politics | Oneindia News

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~
