Your opinion: Will Rahul Gandhi's candidature bring development in Wayanad?As far as I know, Rahul Gandhi has been the MP of Amethi since 2004. Before 2004, his mother, Sonia Gandhi, had been the MP of Amethi since 1999. Rahul Gandhi's late father was the MP of Amethi during 1981–91. Rahul Gandhi's father, Late Rajiv Gandhi, was also the Prime Minister of the country from 1984–89. Before that, Rahul Gandhi's late uncle, Sanjay Gandhi had been the MP of Amethi (elected in 1980). During 1992-99, Rajiv's trusted friend, Captain Satish Sharma, was the MP of Amethi.
Despite having so many illustrated MPs, most of whom are from the first political family of India, if we visit Amethi, we would feel that we have suddenly reached a semi-rural place of the 1940s or 1950s. The light of development has not reached most areas of this unfortunate constituency. Education and development have almost farcical words in Amethi.
Similar would be the case of Wayanad if it elects Rahul Gandhi as its MP. This well-developed constituency of Kerala will surely go the Amethi way, if it elects Rahul Gandhi.
This is my personal opinion. What about yours?
