BJP president Amit Shah, today, accused that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi is running away to Kerala to contest from Wayand Lok Sabha constituency, as hefears that Amethi voters will seek an account of work done by him and his party over the years.
He tweeted : “Rahul Gandhi has fled to Kerala as he fears that Amethi voters will seek an account from him.” The BJP chief also said, “The Congress had given clean chit to Pakistan terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba in Samjhauta Express bomb blast case, sent Swami Aseemanand and other innocent persons to jail, and had put a tag of terrorism on Hindus.”
With this decision, Rahul Gandhi becomes the third member of the Gandhi family to select a second seat from south India. Prior to him, his grandmother and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had contested from Chikmagalur in Karnataka in 1978. His mother and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi fought from Bellary in the same state in 1998.
