Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi is a Congress leader. He was president of the party and led the Opposition campaign in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. But the Grand Old Party failed miserably in the elections winning only 52 seats in the 545-member Lok Sabha. Rahul lost his home turf Amethi to BJP's Smriti Irani but won from Wayanad in Kerala. The son of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul has always appeared to be a reluctant entrant to politics like his father. He entered electoral politics in 2004. He was appointed as the party general secretary in 2007 and was elevated as its vice president in January 2013. He took over as the Congress president from his mother Sonia Gandhi in December 2017.
