Entery In Politics -

Rahul Gandhi declared his entry in Indian politics in March 2004. He announced that he would contest in May 2004 Lok Sabha elections from the constituency of Amethi, Uttar Pradesh, from where his father had contested earlier. At that time his mother, Sonia Gandhi, was holding the seat until she moved to Rae Bareilly, a neighbouring constituency. During this time the situation of the Congress party was not so good and it was holding only ten of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh. This announcement generated mixed reactions among different political associates. The political commentators regarded Priyanka to be more charismatic and even started comparing her to her grandmother, Indira Gandhi. They were of the opinion that there is greater likelihood that Priyanka would be more successful in the endeavour, while others thought that this move would kindle the Congress party’s fortune, that the presence of one of the young members of India’s most famous political family would usher hope among the young generation. Rahul Gandhi in his first foreign media interview conveyed that he condemns “divisive” politics in India. He said that he will work as a uniting force and try to reduce tensions cropping out of religion and caste issues. Rahul Gandhi won the elections and retained the family stronghold.
