Amethi’s earlier Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi was accused by his political opponents of neglecting the constituency and its development, while treating it as his family fiefdom.
Rahul Gandhi, who won the seat for three Lok Sabha terms from 2004 finally lost the seat to Smriti Irani by a margin of over 55,000 votes.
