Didi vs Bhaiya: Smriti Irani and Rahul Gandhi Face Off in Amethi Amid 2019 Rematch Buzz

A political showdown is expected to occur in Amethi on Monday when Congressman Rahul Gandhi and Union Minister Smriti Irani are expected to arrive in this prominent Lok Sabha seat on the same day. There is speculation that they will be running for the same seat in the parliamentary elections that are scheduled for April and May. Irani had defeated Rahul Gandhi in the Modi wave to seize the Amethi Lok Sabha seat from the Congress in 2019. Irani will arrive for a four-day visit to her constituency as part of her Jan Samvad Vikas Yatra, while Rahul Gandhi and Congress chairman Mallikarjun Kharge will reach Amethi as part of their ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

In Amethi, a Lok Sabha seat that the Congress has only lost three times to date, this will be the first time since the 2022 U.P. assembly elections that the two leaders will have campaigned for their party candidates on the same day but at different locations. Amethi and Rae Bareli are unquestionably more than just constituencies to us. They are the home of our party leadership, thus it is inevitable that a member of the Gandhi family will run for office, according to UP Congress head Ajay Rai. He also said that the BJP’s decision to hold Smriti’s event on the same day in Amethi demonstrated “growing restlessness in the BJP camp.”

Rahul is anticipated to travel from Pratapgarh to Amethi on Monday as part of his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. He is scheduled to host a public meeting and a roadshow in a region that elected him three times in a row before his defeat in the 2019 Modi wave. To continue her Amethi Jan Samvad Vikas Yatra, Smriti will pick up where she left off, visiting individuals in each of the five assembly constituencies that comprise her Lok Sabha. Rahul and his yatra will arrive in Rae Bareli, the lone U.P. Lok Sabha constituency that the Congress won in 2019, after spending the night somewhere, most likely close to Fursatganj. With Sonia Gandhi’s announcement that the Gandhi family will remain associated with the area and her decision to move to the Rajya Sabha, rumors about Rahul’s sister and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra running for the seat are starting to spread.

On Saturday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) organized for some four thousand people to come see the recently opened Ayodhya temple. Additional trips are planned. On February 22, Smriti is scheduled to host a housewarming celebration for her recently constructed Amethi home. Her 2019 long-term strategy campaign revolved around the idea that, although Rahul had been a generally unapproachable MP, she would remain in the public eye if she were elected. Irani hopes to quietly inform the public during the housewarming function that she has fulfilled every pledge she made to them during the 2019 Lok Sabha campaign. She would look for another opportunity to help the people in her capacity as their “didi.” When Rahul Gandhi was referred to as “bhaiya” in this context until 2014, the term “didi” was coined as a response. “We are not travelers. After the housewarming, you will see Didi living here, as we have fulfilled our word,” stated Vijay Gupta, the Lok Sabha MP for Smriti Irani in Amethi.

Swati Maliwal Assault: Kejriwal and Akhilesh Dismiss Questions; Sanjay Singh Speaks Out | Watch

Swati Maliwal Assault: Kejriwal and Akhilesh Dismiss Questions; Sanjay Singh Speaks Out | Watch

Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav addressed the media together. When Kejriwal brought up the topic of the assault on Swati Maliwal, he handed the microphone to Akhilesh. He stated, “There are more important things than this.” As for the alleged attack on Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal at Kejriwal’s residence by CM’s PA Bibhav Kumar, AAP MP Sanjay Singh has made statements about it thus far. He said he would speak on the matter and then cited Manipur, Prajwal Revanna, and the wrestlers’ protest against former chief wrestler of the Wrestling Federation of India, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

“The prime minister said nothing while the wife of a Kargil hero was paraded in Manipur in her undies. PM Modi requested support for Prajwal Revanna, who had raped and molested many women. And the authorities assisted him in his escape. Swati Maliwal went to visit the women wrestlers during their protests at night, and the cops beat her up. Sanjay Singh remarked, “We have seen PM Modi’s silence on Hathras, Kuldeep Sengar. “The Party of Aam Aadmi is a family. The party has already made it clear where it stands on this matter. I want the BJP to respond to all of these questions, especially the incident in which the cops beat up Swati Maliwal. Politics shouldn’t be played over this, according to Sanjay Singh.

On Wednesday, Sanjay Singh visited Swati Maliwal at her home, but the BJP is pressing for action against Vibhav Kumar in this regard. Leaders of the BJP also questioned if Swati Maliwal was under pressure from the AAP, given that no formal complaint has been filed on the assault event. The picture of Bibhav Kumar seen at the Lucknow airport with Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh was released by the BJP on Thursday. “This is the image from last night of the Lucknow airport.” Vibhav, the one wearing the black shirt, struck Swati Maliwal. Kejriwal is upset, as is Sanjay Singh, who said that Bibhav has done something really wrong. BJP’s Kapil Mishra commented on X, saying, “The third one is Kejriwal himself, who is accused of getting Swati beaten up.”

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Kejriwal Sparks Controversy: ‘Modi Never Ruled Out Retirement at 75,’ Amid ‘Amit Shah for PM’ Claim

Amit Shah will succeed Narendra Modi as prime minister in 2025, when the latter turns 75, according to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who announced this Thursday. The prime minister has never said he will not step down at that age. Despite the disagreements between Amit Shah and some other politicians on Kejriwal’s age and retirement, PM Modi never said he wouldn’t retire at 75, Kejriwal said at a joint press conference with Samajwadi Party chairman Akhilesh Yadav (Lucknow). “Everyone in the nation is confident that Modi won’t deviate from his 75-year retirement age,” Kejriwal stated.

“Amit Shah’s appointment as prime minister is now confirmed. According to him, the BJP has ignored every opponent, including Devendra Fadnavis, Manohar Lal Khattar, Vasundhara Raje, Dr. Raman Singh, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The only issue at hand is Yogi Adityanath, who would be ousted in two to three months, according to Kejriwal, who also mentioned that no BJP leader had disputed his remarks against Adityanath, suggesting that Adityanath’s departure was all but certain.

According to Kejriwal, eliminating reservations is the BJP’s “big plan” if they win the election.

During his first rally after leaving Tihar, Kejriwal stated that if he supported the BJP, Amit Shah would become prime minister since, according to party policy, no one over 75 may hold any job. Narendra Modi will turn 75 in 2025. In response to Kejriwal’s assertion, Amit Shah stated that Narendra Modi will serve out his term and continue to head the party well beyond 2029. Amit Shah charged that Kejriwal was fomenting disarray within the party about the leadership, whereas there is none.

“I would want to inform Arvind Kejriwal and associates that there is no need to celebrate Modiji’s 75th birthday. The BJP constitution does not mention his ineligibility to serve as prime minister. He will serve out the remainder of his time as prime minister. The party is not confused,” Amit Shah declared.
