Lok Sabha polls | Rahul, Sonia & Rajnath: Prestige contests in UP Phase 5
Phase 5 of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, which will have 50 constituencies voting across 7 states, will witness some high-profile battles. The Gandhi bastions of Amethi and Raebareli, currently held by Congress President Rahul Gandhi and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi respectively, will vote on May 6. Also up for grabs will be Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, and the constituency of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Although Raebareli is expected to be an easy win for Sonia, the Bharatiya Janata Party is intent on giving Rahul Gandhi a tough fight, by fielding Union Minister Smriti Irani against him. Rajnath is facing Samajwadi Party’s Poonam Sinha and Congress’ Pramod Krishnam. Watch the full video for an in-depth analysis of the key fights in this round of voting.
