Sonia files nomination from Rae Bareli

UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi filed her nomination from Rae Bareli. She was accompanied by son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Vadra. After a brief road show, she went to the collectorate to file her nomination papers. A large number of Congress supporters carried party flags and banners and cheered her all along the route.

She offered a puja in the Congress office where her son in law Robert Vadra and grandson Rehan were present. Sonia hopes to get a consecutive fifth win from the parliamentary constituency. This time she is pitted against Dinesh Pratap Singh who recently quit the Congress party and joined the BJP.
