New Delhi, Apr 21: Amid speculations on whether or not she is going to battle the Lok Sabha elections from Varanasi towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Priyanka Gandhi on Sunday put the onus on Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Although she took a plunge into the lively politics in January this yr, Priyanka Gandhi has not but made it clear whether or not she would contest Lok Sabha polls or not. Even when Priyanka does determine to contest, ‘from the place’ is the query that’s being broadly debated by political analysts and is one thing that’s vehemently mentioned frequently on nearly each information channel.

Priyanka additionally desires everybody to maintain guessing and from time to time makes a veiled however obscure comment hinting at one thing, however unsure what it’s.

Final month, when requested if she want to contest from her mom’s constituency, Raebareli, Priyanka Gandhi had quipped, “Why not Varanasi”. And stopped at that, she didn’t reply to questions put forth by the scribe after that comment and simply saved smiling.

In the present day in Wayanad the place she is campaigning for Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka stated she can be pleased to contest from Varanasi if Rahul asks her to.

“If the Congress President asks me to contest, I will be happy to contest,” Priyanka Gandhi stated in Wayanad, the Kerala constituency from the place Rahul Gandhi can be contesting LS polls together with the household bastion of Amethi.

One factor is for certain, if Priyanka decides to tackle PM Modi from Varanasi, the town will witness what could be known as the mom of all contests.

Congress is in reality taking part in thoughts video games by permitting this suspense to construct up. However then once more, suspense is a double edged sword.

When Priyanka Gandhi casually informed Congress staff in Raebareli, “Why not Varanasi”, she created the suspense herself. If Priyanka Gandhi now decides to not contest from Varanasi, it would make Modi seem even stronger – in Varanasi and India alike. The unmistakable message would be the Congress does not have the hearth in its stomach to battle the Modi juggernaut.
