Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi were welcomed by unprecedented crowds in Wayanad as Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination. The Congress has chosen this seat hoping it will give them more traction in the south. Rahul Gandhi also conducted a massive roadshow with his sister. All the way across in Rahul Gandhi's other constituency - Amethi - was the BJP's Smriti Irani, who told locals that he was running away from them. Rahul Gandhi is a three-time MP from Amethi.
