Lok Sabha Election 2024 Live: Jairam Ramesh explains Rahul Gandhi's Rae Bareli move

Lok Sabha Election 2024 Live: In an X post, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said: "Many people have many opinions on the news of Rahul Gandhi contesting elections from Rae Bareli. But he is a seasoned player of politics and chess. He makes his moves after careful consideration. The party leadership has taken this decision after a lot of deliberation and strategy. This decision has devastated the BJP, its supporters and sycophants. The poor self-proclaimed Chanakya who used to talk about 'traditional seats' is not able to understand what to do now?

• Rae Bareli has not only been Sonia ji's seat but also Indira Gandhi's seat. This is not a legacy but a responsibility, a duty.

• As far as the Gandhi family's stronghold is concerned, not just Amethi-Rae Bareli, the entire country from north to south is the stronghold of the Gandhi family. Rahul Gandhi has become an MP three times from Uttar Pradesh and once from Kerala, but why couldn't Modiji muster the courage to contest elections below Vindhyachal?

• One more thing is clear that the Congress family is the family of expectations and aspirations of lakhs of workers. An ordinary worker of Congress is superior to the big ones. Yesterday, a prominent journalist was sarcastically saying to a worker of Amethi that “when will your turn come to get a ticket”? Look, it has come! An ordinary worker of Congress will break both the illusion and arrogance of BJP in Amethi.

• Priyanka ji is campaigning vigorously and is alone shutting up Narendra Modi by answering his every lie with the truth. That is why it was necessary that she should not be limited to her constituency only. Priyanka ji will reach the House by contesting any by-election.

• Today Smriti Irani's only identity is that she contests elections from Amethi against Rahul Gandhi. Now Smriti Irani has lost that fame too.

• Now instead of making useless statements, Smriti Irani should answer about local development, the closed hospitals, steel plant and IIT - that needs to be answered.

• There are some chess moves left, please wait a bit."
