Rahul to file nomination papers in Wayanad today

Congress President Rahul Gandhi will be filing his nomination papers  today to contest in the Waynad Lok Sabha seat at Kalpetta, the headquarter of kerala’s highland district . He will be accompanied by elder sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and  senior party leaders from New Delhi as well as the top brass  of the Congress in Kerala.He will  get very little time just a little over a fortnight to campaign in the constituency due to the delay over naming his candidature

It was originally decided that  Siddique would be the nominee but the party finally announced Mr Gandhi’s candidature on 31st of March.The Wayanad constituency has been reckoned as a safe bet for the Congress. The Congress led United Democratic Front (UDF) is keen on making  the event spectacular as it hopes that  the Rahul effect will  radiate across all the 20 constituencies in Kerala in the election to be held on April 23rd.
