Washout for Congress in Rahul’s Amethi

Washout for Congress in Rahul’s Amethi

March 12, 2017

Six out of 10 Assembly seats in Amethi and Rae Bareli parliamentary constituencies that are long considered Congress strongholds have gone to the BJP while two went to the Samajwadi Party.

It was a complete washout for the Congress in Rahul’s Amethi Lok Sabha constituency, comprising Assembly seats of Amethi, Tiloi, Jagdishpur, Gauriganj and Salon. The party managed to win two of the five assembly constituencies of Sonia Gandhi’s Rae Bareli Lok Sabha seat — Rae Bareli and Harchandpur — while losing Sareni, Bachhrawan and Unchahar.

In Rahul’s constituency, the Congress managed to come in at second spot in Jagdishpur, Gauriganj and Salon, was beaten to third spot in Tiloi and came in a miserable fourth in Amethi itself. In Sonia’s constituency, the party came in at No.2 in Bachhrawan, No.3 in Sareni and a distant fourth in Unchahar.

In the prestigious Amethi constituency, the erstwhile “queen” of the royal family Garima Singh of the BJP defeated SP’s rape-accused absconding Minister Gaytri Prasad Prajapati. Congress candidate Ameeta Singh, the current “queen” and wife of senior leader Sanjay Singh, came in a poor fourth behind the BSP candidate.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Washout for Congress in Rahul’s Amethi”

  1. nanjundarao says:

    70 years of freedom has educated and enlightened the common man of Bharat. He is matured to choose his representative. He rejects who usuerp leadership and impose their personal whims and fancies. This ideal is the very nature of Bharatiya blood, the DNA. To dedicate oneself for service to others. When politics behaved otherwise and tried to rob the nation for their individual pleasures a new hope descended in the style of Modi. A spirit of what I can do for the poor to uplift them to make India great. No political party has exhibited such an inclination of love towards the people they have to serve, because they do not have time to waste on this unprofitable venture. Unlike Pisa tower, it has inclination, but no time! Good money drives out bad out of circulation. Cure for monetary sickness is demonetization and for sick politics the vote will demanifest. Congress is
    the prime victim and UP is the best diagnoser. Political terrorism is faced by the Voter as is by the soldier at LOC, including religious Muslims. Jai Hind.
