A day after Congress President Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination from his traditional seat Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi filed her nomination from Rae Bareli- her traditional constituency. Sonia Gandhi performed a puja today before filing her nomination papers in Raebareli in Uttar Pradesh, which has voted her since 2004. She was seen, flanked by her children Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at a havan organised by a party worker.
Priyanka Gandhi’s children were also present during the rituals, along with several Congress leaders.
There were speculations that the former Congress chief who has reduced her media participation and has avoided public glare in last few years will not be contesting from Rae Bareli. The seat would instead go to her daughter Priyanka Gandhi vadra. However, turning down the rumours, both Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi filed nominations from their constituencies. #RaeBareli #SoniaGandhi #Congress #Elections2004
