In an emotional speech at Rae Bareilly's Maharajganj, Rahul Gandhi said, “…we have a 100-year-old relationship with Rae Bareilly. A few days ago when I was sitting with my mother I told her that I had said in a video that I have two mothers Sonia ji and Indira ji. My mother did not like this but I explained to her that a mother is the one who guides and protects the child. Both my mother and Indiraji did this for me. This is the 'Karma Bhoomi' of both my mothers. This is the reason why I have come to contest the election from Rae Bareli.

Rahul Gandhi also alleged that for the first time in Indian history, “BJP-RSS people want to destroy our Constitution. Their leaders have made it clear that if they come to power, they will destroy the Constitution.” Will change…”

Reaching out to farmers, the Congress MP said, “…I promise that if the Congress-India bloc comes to power at the Centre, my first task will be to waive the loans of poor farmers.”

Rahul Gandhi is the current Member of Parliament in Wayanad, Kerala, where he is seeking a new term alongside Rae Bareli. Rahul represented Amethi from 2004 to 2019. In Rae Bareli, he will face Congress quitter and three-time BJP MLC Dinesh Pratap Singh.

Rae Bareli Constituency polling in the fifth phase will be held on May 20. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Congress leader Sonia Gandhi won the constituency by securing 5,34,918 votes. His closest rival, Dinesh Pratap Singh, put up a formidable challenge by getting 3,67,740 votes.
