Rae Bareli is the most suitable 'place'.

There have been talks many times that Priyanka Gandhi-Vadhera will contest the elections, but they have not yet entered the fray as candidates.

There are clear indications that she will be the candidate in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. It was said that she can contest elections from Rae Bareli. But now there are speculations about 'Daman-Diu'.

Sonia Gandhi invincible from Rae Bareli

However, apart from Sonia Gandhi, Indira Gandhi and Feroze Gandhi also contested from Rae Bareli and went to the Lok Sabha. In this context, Rae Bareli could be the most suitable place for Priyanka. After the 1999 Lok Sabha elections, Sonia Gandhi is unbeaten from Rae Bareli, having won in 2004, 2006 (by-elections), 2009, 2014 and 2019.

But did not become active in politics. Campaigned for Congress in 2007 assembly elections but was confined to Amethi-Rae Bareli.

He has not yet contested any election

Priyanka Gandhi had campaigned for Congress in a similar way in 2009. But was not officially affiliated with the Congress party. In 2012, Congress made him a star campaigner. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he again supported the Congress as a star campaigner. In the 2017 assembly elections, he campaigned for Congress candidates in a limited capacity.
