NEW DELHI – There is growing speculation that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra may make her electoral debut as the Congress candidate for the by-election in the Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency if Rahul Gandhi vacates the seat.

Rahul Gandhi, who won the Lok Sabha elections by large margins in both the Raebareli and Wayanad constituencies, added to this speculation on June 11 by stating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would have lost “by two-three lakh votes” if Priyanka had contested against him in Varanasi, NDTV reported.

During the election campaign, Priyanka focused much of her efforts on Raebareli and Amethi, resulting in significant victories for the Congress in these areas. The Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance surprised many by winning 43 out of Uttar Pradesh’s 80 constituencies, with the Congress increasing its tally to six seats from just one in 2019. In contrast, the BJP’s count dropped from 62 to 33, trailing behind the Samajwadi Party’s 37 seats.
