BJP on Friday said it will put up “formidable” candidates from Amethi and Rae Bareli amid speculation that actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani could be fielded against Rahul Gandhi and Uma Bharti against Sonia Gandhi.
“We will put formidable candidates in Amethi and Rae Bareli,” BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi told reporters here today.
Rahul is contesting from Amethi while Sonia Gandhi is contesting from Rae Bareli. Both the constituencies in Uttar Pradesh are considered to be Gandhi family strongholds.
