Team To Ascertain Rahul Gandhi’s Defeat In Amethi
New Delhi: To ascertain the reason behind Rahul Gandhi’s defeat to BJP leader Smriti Irani in Amethi, a special team has been sent to the Parliamentary Constituency, which was considered a stronghold of the Nehru-Gandhi family.
The team comprises of AICC secretary Zubair Khan and Congress’ Raebareli in-charge KL Sharma. Both the leaders have been asked to give a report for the reason for the loss, said a senior party functionary from Amethi.
Noteworthy, Sharma was looking after Amethi Lok Sabha seat till 2009 when he was replaced by Chandrakant, a party worker from Madhya Pradesh.
