The Congress Amethi Unit has reportedly written to Rahul Gandhi urging him to contest from the Wayanad constituency from Kerala too. Yogendra Mishra representing Congress party in Amethi has written a letter to the Congress chief asking him to accept their request and contest elections from both Northern and Southern India, reported Republic TV.
Yogendra Mishra called Rahul Gandhi “the next prime minister of India” while writing about how Sonia Gandhi and Indira Gandhi had fought the Lok Sabha elections both from North India and South India.
The letter also said:
“Rahul Gandhi is a member of Parliament from Amethi constituency. The party works from southern India has invited Rahul Ji to fight elections. To accept this request would be honouring the workers on North and South India”.
Karnataka and Tamil Nadu Congress units and the All India Congress Committee General secretary Oommen Chandy have also requested Rahul Gandhi to fight from the Wayanad constituency in Kerala.
