Rahul Gandhi, Congress President accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra arrived in Kozhikode on Tuesday night and will begin on a massive roadshow before filing his nomination papers as a candidate in Wayanad constituency for upcoming general elections. Apart from his home, Amethi will file his nomination today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a rally said that “Gandhi chose Wayanad because the constituency is not ‘dominated by the majority community.’ Congress was running away from majority-dominated areas to take refuge in areas where the majority is in minority”. Congress claims that people in South India feel hostility from Modi. Rahul Gandhi said the Wayanad ticket is a way to send out a message that “Congress stands with you. I stand with you.”
