Rahul Gandhi to relinquish Wayanad seat? Kerala Congress chief says, ‘can’t expect him to…’

Posted by


Sudhakaran, while speaking at a public event, hinted that the Wayanad MP would give up his seat, saying, “We should not be saddened as Rahul Gandhi who is supposed to lead the nation cannot be expected to remain in Wayanad.” 

“Therefore, we should not be sad. Everyone should understand that and give all their wishes and support to him,” he added .

Gandhi won both the Rae Bareli and Wayanad seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls. 

Rahul Gandhi thanks Kerala voters

Gandhi thanked voters in Kerala who enabled his Lok Sabha victory from the state’s Wayanad constituency in the 2024 general elections.

This is the first time Gandhi has visited the state after his massive 3,64,422 votes margin victory over rival and CPI candidate Annie Raja from the constituency in north Kerala. In the 2019 elections, he secured the seat with a record margin of 4.3 lakh.

Addressing a public gathering in Malappuram here, Gandhi who had also contested and won from the Raebareili seat in Uttar Pradesh said, “I have a dilemma in front of me — Will I be a Member of Parliament of Wayanad or Raebareli?”

Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi, Rahul Gandhi said, “Unfortunately, unlike the prime minister, I’m not guided by God. I’m a human being.”

“You saw how the Prime Minsiter said ‘400 paar’ and after that 400-paar disappeared and ‘300-paar’ came. After 300-paar disappeared, he gave a speech where he said ‘I am not biological’, I do not take any decision and I have been put on this earth by ‘Parmatma’ and he takes all the decisions. Modiji’s strange ‘parmatma’ makes him take all decisions in favour of Adani-Ambani. ‘Parmatma’ tells him to give Bombay Airport, Lucknow Airport and power plants to Adani,” Gandhi said.

Rahul Gandhi said that for him “it’s much simpler. My God is the poor people of India. My God is the people of Wayanad. For me, it’s easy. I just talk to the people and my God tells me what to do. Back to the question of Wayanad or Rae Bareli, what I will commit to you is that both Wayanad and Rae Bareli will be happy with my decision.”
