Bareilly | Railways Minister Piyush Goyal exuded confidence on Sunday that the Bharatiya Janata Party would win the Amethi Lok Sabha seat, which is represented by Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.
“In the past five years, notable work has been done in every sector. The BJP will win more seats as compared to the previous election. The BJP will also win Amethi — the traditional seat of the Congress,” Goyal said at the party’s “vijay sankalp sabha” here.
The Union minister attacked Gandhi over reports that the Congress leader might also contest from Wayanad in Kerala. “He (Rahul) is running away from UP.
