Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra hinted on Friday that she might contest from Amethi in case party president and her brother Rahul Gandhi wins both the seats he is contesting in the Lok Sabha elections, one of which is the family’s traditional stronghold.

“It’s not a challenge,” Priyanka Gandhi said in an interview to HT on Friday, when asked if she was ready to take on the task of contesting for the Amethi seat in case the Congress president gives it up – a scenario that is possible if he wins Amethi as well as Wayanad in Kerala.
