Admits the announcement of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections results. Let’s talk about the most highlighted seat of this election. We are talking about Amethi seat.
The whole country is eyeing the Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi Lok Sabha seat.
Amethi has always been a stronghold of the Gandhi family. Congress party president Rahul Gandhi is contesting elections from here.
However, the results are different here this time. This time in Amethi, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has fielded Union Minister Smriti Irani in the field against Rahul Gandhi. And, in the trends of the counting of votes Rahul Gandhi, trailing behind with nearly 1200 votes.
Apart from the Amethi seat, Rahul Gandhi is also fighting from the Wayanad Lok Sabha seat of Kerala.
Rajnath Singh Vs Poonam Sinha
Now, except Rahul Gandhi and Smriti Irani, SP has fielded Shatrughan Sinha’s wife Poonam Sinha from Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow constituency. She is trailing with over four thousand votes in this election. Poonam Sinha was contesting elections against BJP leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Let us tell you that in the Lok Sabha elections, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee represented the Lucknow seat. Then in 2009, Lal G Tandon and in 2014 Rajnath Singh won this seat with heavy votes.
This time for the Lok Sabha elections, 2019, BJP has again brought Rajnath Singh from Lucknow.
Amethi has always been the stronghold of the Gandhi family. They have always dominated this seat from the beginning. Only two times it has happened since 1967 when the Congress has not won the Lok Sabha election.
At present, there are five assembly constituencies (Amethi, Gauriganj, Tiloi, Jagdishpur, and Salon) within Amethi Lok Sabha constituency. Rahul, who started his political innings from Amethi in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, has won the hat-trick of winning.
