Will Leave You In Suspense: Rahul Gandhi On Priyanka Gandhi Contesting from Varanasi

Lucknow: In an interview to The Hindu newspaper, Congress president Rahul Gandhi did not either confirm or deny the possibility of his sister Priyanka Gandhi taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi. He said, “I will leave you in suspense. Suspense is not always a bad thing”.

So he was not denying it, the interviewer pressed. "I'm not confirming or denying anything," said the Congress president.

Last month, Priyanka Gandhi had steered speculation towards the possibility during an interaction with Congress workers who wanted her to contest from Raebareli, her mother Sonia Gandhi's constituency. When she told the workers about her mother feeling bad she could not come down to meet them, they urged her to fight from the constituency. "Why not Varanasi," she grinned, as reported by news agency IANS.

The statement came a day after when Priyanka said she was ready to contest elections. She said, “If my party wants me to contest polls then I will definitely do so”.

Ever since Priyanka dropped a hint during the Ganga boat campaign, there has been buzz about PM Modi vs Priyanka Gandhi fight for contesting elections in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi.
