If this is not done then both Rae Bareli and Wayanad seats will be lost | Live Updates, Unveiling the Latest India News Trends

Rae Bareli or Wayanad seat After Congress MP Rahul Gandhi won from Rae Bareli and Wayanad Lok Sabha seats, he will have to choose one of these two seats. He will have to take this decision in just one day. If he does not take a decision by tomorrow, then both the seats are likely to slip out of his hands. Rahul won from Rae Bareli by 3.90 lakh votes and from Wayanad by 3.64 lakh votes.

…then both the seats will be considered vacant

According to the rules of the Constitution, Rahul Gandhi will have to choose one seat from Rae Bareli or Wayanad as soon as possible. There is a rule to vacate one of the two seats within 14 days of the election results. If resignation is not given from one seat within 14 days, then both seats will be considered vacant. That is, Rahul Gandhi will have to resign from one seat by June 18. According to the rules, any member has to submit his resignation in writing to the Lok Sabha Speaker. Then there is a provision to hold a by-election on that seat within six months of resignation.

I am confused about which seat to vacate: Rahul Gandhi

After the election results, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi visited Wayanad and thanked the people and also asked from where did I become an MP? He said, I am confused which seat to leave. He also said, I promise that both Wayanad and Rae Bareli will be happy with my decision. Thank you for all your support and will come back to meet you soon.

Before this, Indira and Sonia had also won two seats each

This is not the first time that a Congress leader from the Nehru-Gandhi family has won elections from two seats. This has happened before as well. From Indira Gandhi to Sonia Gandhi, both have won elections from two seats each. The special thing is that just as Rahul has won elections from one seat in South India and one seat in North India, Indira and Sonia have also won before him. However, amid speculations about Rahul's Wayanad-Rae Bareli, there is also a discussion whether any leader from the Nehru-Gandhi family has chosen the North or the South after winning two seats? Have they retained some seats and left some seats?

'When Indira Gandhi won the election from two seats…'

Emergency was declared in India for a period of 21 months from 25 June 1975 to 21 March 1977. Meanwhile, in the 1997 Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had to face defeat in Rae Bareli. After this, she contested the Lok Sabha elections from two seats of Andhra Pradesh, Rae Bareli and Medak, in 1980 and won both. After winning, when it came to choosing one of the two traditional seats, she chose Medak. Indira resigned from the Lok Sabha membership from the Rae Bareli seat.

After winning two seats, did Sonia choose anything?

Like Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi contested two Lok Sabha seats in 1999, winning both Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and Bellary in Karnataka. When it came to resigning from a seat, she chose Amethi. She retained the Amethi seat and resigned from the Bellary seat. The reason behind her decision was the margin of victory. It was argued at the time that the margin of victory in Amethi was higher than that in Bellary.

Mother or grandmother, which formula will Rahul adopt?

Now Rahul Gandhi, like his mother Sonia Gandhi and grandmother Indira Gandhi, has also won the election from two seats, one North and one South. In such a situation, what formula will he adopt? While Indira Gandhi chose a safe seat like Rae Bareli considering the margin of victory, Sonia Gandhi chose Amethi. When Indira Gandhi came to power in the Congress, the math was different. While Sonia Gandhi won both the seats, she had to lose power and the BJP formed the government at the Center. The same has happened in Lok Sabha Elections-2024 (Lok Sabha Election Results 2024). Along with the Center, there is a BJP government in Uttar Pradesh as well.

'If Rahul Gandhi leaves Rae Bareli seat…'

According to political analysts, Rahul Gandhi will use Sonia Gandhi's formula. As per the current situation, Congress is in a better position in the South than in the North. Rahul and the Congress leadership will also focus on Uttar Pradesh and the Hindi belt states. In such a situation, if they decide to leave Rae Bareli, there is a fear of sending a negative message. Other factors include by-election trends and the game of numbers. In the Rae Bareli by-election, the Congress will face the ruling BJP, while the Left in Kerala… Whether the Congress wins or the Left, there will be no impact on the number of seats of the Indian alliance in both.
