Rahul files nomination from Amethi

New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday filed his nomination papers for the Lok Sabha elections from his traditional stronghold of Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi, reports Hindustan Times. 

 The Congress boss was accompanied by his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Congress general secretary, and brother-in-law Robert Vadra to the local collectorate.

Before that, Rahul Gandhi led a 3-km roadshow from Gauriganj. He rode on the rooftop of a truck along with Priyanka and Robert Vadra. Their son Raihan and daughter Miraya were also present.

A massive crowd of supporters walked on both sides of the road and showered flower petals on the Congress leaders. Many shouted slogans as Congress workers danced to drum beats.
