It was inarguably the toughest fight of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 – BJP candidate Smriti Irani vs Gandhi family scion, Rahul Gandhi. But erstwhile TV bahu and BJP candidate, Smriti Irani, took the fight deep into Gandhi’s pocketborough of Amethi, and emerged victorious.
In a decisive and hard-fought victory, Smriti Irani has managed to win against the Gandhi family scion, Rahul Gandhi in UP’s Amethi constituency, a seat that the Congress hasn’t lost since 1998.
As per reports in the media, Irani’s victory margin is quite slim. She has won by a slender margin of 35,000 votes, which is quite stunning, given that she was pitted against the Congress President in the bastion of the Gandhi family.
Incidentally, Smriti Irani had lost in Amethi against Rahul Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. It is a spectacular comeback on Irani’s part.
We wish Smriti Irani a successful Lok Sabha term.
