Amethi: Union Minister and prominent BJP leader Smriti Irani took a significant step in her electoral journey on Monday by filing her nomination papers from the Amethi Lok Sabha constituency.

Accompanied by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav and several other leaders, Irani led a spirited roadshow from the BJP office in Gauriganj before formally submitting her papers.

The roadshow, which garnered considerable enthusiasm from supporters, came to a halt approximately 200 meters before the collectorate, adhering to the directives issued by the district magistrate.

Joining the procession were Uttar Pradesh Minister Mayankashwar Sharan Singh and Irani's husband, Zubin Irani, further bolstering the show of support for the BJP candidate.

Irani's decision to contest from Amethi, considered the stronghold of the Gandhi family, comes on the heels of her historic victory over Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in the 2019 elections.

"After filing my nomination today, I am committed to serving the people of Amethi," Irani remarked to reporters. "Over the past five years, significant strides have been made in Amethi, including the construction of 1,14,000 houses under the PM Awas Yojana, the provision of electricity connections to 1.5 lakh families, and assistance to over 4 lakh farmers through the PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme. I am confident that the people will once again bless PM Modi and the BJP."

While the Congress has yet to announce its candidate from the seat, speculations abound that Rahul Gandhi will opt to contest from Amethi once more.

Amethi is slated to cast its votes in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha polls scheduled for May 20th, setting the stage for a keenly contested electoral battle.
