Rahul to contest from Wayanad constituency in Kerala
CM and LDF leader Pinarayi Vijayan takes a vow to defeat Cong president Thiruvananthapuram, Mar 31 (HS): Congress president Rahul Gandhi would be contesting from Wayanad constituency in Kerala apart from Amethi (UP) in the coming Lok Sabha elections. This has evoked sharp reaction from Kerala chief minister and LDF (Left Democratic Front) leader, Pinarayi Vijayan taking a vow to defeat Congress president Rahul Gandhi after the Congress decided to contest against their longest alliance partner. This political fight in the southern state is seen as direct challenge to the CPI(M) from the Congress. Kerala CM opposed Congress for fielding their president against the Left and criticised their commitment keeping BJP out of power. Earlier, senior Congress leader A.K. Antony on Sunday in a press conference openly revealed that their party president accepted contesting from Wayanad which is one among the 20 constituencies in the state. Apart from CM Pinarayi Vijayan, the former general secretary of CPI(M), Prakash Karat voiced similar sentiments vowing to defeat the Congress criticising their former ally giving priority to contest against the Left going against their own commitment to fight the BJP giving fresh twist to a three way political battle with entry of Congress apart from CPI(M) and BJP. Before Rahul Gandhi''s candidature, Congress finalised its candidates on 12 Lok Sabha seats in Kerala. The Congress is contesting on 16 seats out of 20 along with two seats for ally, IUML (Indian Union Muslim League),1 seat each for Kerala Congress (Mani) as well as for Socialist Party (RSP) respectively.
