Rahul Gandhi to visit Wayanad next week to thank voters for his record-breaking victory


Thiruvananthapuram: Congress president Rahul Gandhi is expected to visit Wayanad in the first week of June to thank the electorate for his record breaking victory from this Lok Sabha constituency in Kerala in the 2019 polls.

This was disclosed by Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala after the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) met for the first time after registering a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls, winning all but one of the 20 seats in the state.

A source close to the Congress party said that Rahul Gandhi`s visit could be either on Saturday or Monday.
The Gandhi scion had won with the highest ever margin of victory in any Lok Sabha election with 431,770 votes.

He defeated his nearest rival PP Suneer of the Communist Party of India who secured 274,597 votes while Gandhi received 706,367 votes.

"This huge victory has placed more responsibility on us and we assure the people that this victory will not get into their heads. They will always work for the people of the state," Chennithala said.

Rahul's scheduled Kerala visit comes at a time when there are speculations that he is not too keen to continue as Congress president in the backdrop of his party's defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Though the Congress party on Monday issued a statement urging everyone to respect the sanctity of its working committee meeting.(UPDATED ON MAY 27TH 2019)
