KL Sharma: Congress’ Amethi Pick Who Will Face Smriti Irani


Kishori Lal Sharma, a longtime loyalist of the Gandhi family, has been fielded by the Congress from Amethi. The decision was announced this morning, ending weeks of suspense.

Rahul Gandhi, who was expected to make an all-out bid to win back Amethi, has been announced as the party candidate from Raebareli. Mr Gandhi had lost the family bastion – Amethi -in a shock defeat to the BJP’s Smriti Irani in 2019.

KL Sharma thanked the party for the opportunity to contest from Amethi – Gandhis’ family bastion – in Uttar Pradesh.

“I would like to thank Khargeji, Sonia ji, Rahul ji, and Priyanka ji for giving a “chotte” karyakarta like me an opportunity to contest from a seat that is their family bastion. I will work hard. I have been working in this constituency for the last 40 years,” he said.

On BJP’s allegations that Gandhis opted out of Amethi because they were “scared”, KL Sharma said that Rahul Gandhi is fighting for the whole country.

“Rahul Gandhi is not someone who runs away from the ground. He is fighting for the whole country,” he said.
