Rahul Gandhi vs Dinesh Pratap Singh (BJP) in Rae Bareli

In the electoral battleground of Rae Bareli, Rahul Gandhi, the former chief of the Congress party, faced off against Dinesh Pratap Singh of the BJP. This seat holds significance as the only one the Congress secured in Uttar Pradesh during the previous 2019 national polls. Singh, who had previously contested fiercely against Rahul's mother, Sonia Gandhi, posed a challenge once again in this election.

Rae Bareli, along with Amethi, forms the core of the Congress party's influence in Uttar Pradesh, being synonymous with the Gandhi family. Rahul Gandhi represented Amethi in the Lok Sabha for three consecutive terms, until his defeat by Smriti Irani of the BJP in 2019. However, he maintained his presence in Parliament by winning the Wayanad constituency in Kerala in the same elections. This year, Gandhi contested from both Rae Bareli and Wayanad.

Sonia Gandhi, who held the Rae Bareli seat in the past, opted for a shift to the Rajya Sabha earlier this year due to health reasons, clearing the path for her son's nomination from this constituency.

Both Rae Bareli and Amethi went to the polls on May 13, as part of the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections held between April 19 and June 1. Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal were the only states to witness polling across all seven phases.

Exit polls indicate an advantage for Rahul Gandhi in Rae Bareli.

Rahul Gandhi election results LIVE:

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said:

"INDIA will finish the unfinished business of 2014:

1. On Feb 14th 2014, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh pledged special category status to the new state of Andhra Pradesh for 5 years. BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu countered by saying BJP if elected to power will extend it for 10 years. Two months later Narendra Modi, in the holy city of Tirupati, repeated the promise.

2. For the past 10 years the outgoing Modi Sarkar did nothing. It, in fact, abolished the very policy of special category status to financially distressed states.

3. The Indian National Congress has in its 2024 election manifesto pledged to declare special category status to Andhra Pradesh as promised by Dr. Manmohan Singh. This is our guarantee."
