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”.

After Union Minister Smriti Irani was declared as the BJP candidate to fight from the Amethi constituency against Congress President Rahul Gandhi, it has rung alarm bells for several Congress state units, with many feverishly scouting for a second constituency to ensure a guaranteed victory for Rahul.
