Prime Minister Narendra Modi is contesting from Varanasi in general elections 2019, we all know that. Everything is set for filing nomination. The opposition parties are looking for the candidates who will contest against Modi. Huge speculations are being made regarding this. It is said that Rahul Gandhi sister Priyanka Gandhi will contest against Modi in the elections 2019. But, there is no clarity about this. Congress believes that it would be a good step.
But according to sources, she would contest from Prayagraj(Allahabad). Congress didn’t win the Prayagraj seat from the last two decades. Famous Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan had won the seat from Congress in 1984. Thereafter, Congress couldn’t capture this seat. India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and his father Motilal Nehru had resided here, so this is the reason why Congress was successful here at that time.
