Rahul Gandhi Likely To Visit Wayanad On April 11

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be visiting his former constituency Wayanad on April 11. According to India Today’s report, this information has been given by a Congress official citing a document from the District Congress Committee requesting anonymity.

Reportedly, elected MP from Wayanad Lok Sabha seat in 2019, Rahul Gandhi lost his membership after his conviction and subsequent sentencing by a Surat court on March 23.

A day after the verdict of the Surat court, convicting Rahul Gandhi and sentencing him to two years in jail, the Lok Sabha secretariat issued a notification disqualifying him as a member of the Lok Sabha. The Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency in Kerala was declared vacant.

While declaring the dates for Karnataka polls on March 29, the Election Commission said it was in no hurry to hold bypolls for the Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency.

Chief Election Commissioner, Rajiv Kumar, while addressing the media made it clear that the court has given 30 days to Rahul Gandhi to find a legal remedy and that the commission will wait until then.

Rahul Gandhi had last visited his constituency in February this year.
